Hires Dental Care can replace a metal dental crown, broken or worn dental crowns with a new, porcelain dental crown in their Perrysburg, OH cosmetic dentistry office. Replacing a dental crown is a simple procedure that can provide dramatic improvement in the appearance of the smile.
A few benefits of a porcelain dental crown are:
Metal free – do not cause discoloration along the gum like conventional metal dental caps
Natural looking – a porcelain dental crown is made of layers of fine ceramic material, to match natural tooth enamel
Long lasting – a porcelain dental crown is highly durable, as well as stain resistant, meaning it will last for years to come
Comprehensive Exam – One of our highly trained dentists will first perform a comprehensive consultation and assessment to determine if dental crowns are right for you. They will examine the teeth, gums, mouth, and jaw joints to diagnose your condition. After that, an individualized treatment plan will be prepared that addresses your health concerns, especially if gum disease is present, as well as the cosmetic goals.
Preparation of Teeth – Next, your dentist will prepare the tooth for the dental crown. Old fillings or old crowns will be removed to create a solid foundation for the dental crown. Impressions will be taken of the tooth that is receiving the dental crown as well as the neighboring teeth to ensure proper fit and placement.
Temporary Dental Crown – In most cases, your Perrysburg, OH dentist will use a temporary tooth crown to provide protection. The temporary tooth cap will be placed on the tooth while the final restoration is being fabricated at the dental laboratory.
Final Placement of Dental Crown – The last step is the final placement of the dental crown. Your dentist will try on the dental crown to ensure a proper fit. Once both you and he are satisfied, the dental crown will be permanently bonded to the tooth and gently polished.
