All Porcelain Crowns

 

Most dentistry looks like dentistry. At Premier Dental Care, our goal is to provide dentistry that is undetectable. We replace existing crowns and fillings with restorations that look and feel like your natural teeth.

Where damage to a person’s teeth is extreme, and apparently beyond repair, we can use all porcelain crowns to make the smile appear “as new”. This is an extremely reliable technique for repairing the most severe of dental problems, even permanently replacing missing teeth to offer a complete smile and a functional bite. We are renowned for the quality of our work and the fantastic changes we make for people using this technology. These treatments are used for a long-lasting correction of many dental problems. It is usual for these treatments to last for 15 to 20 years, which is as close to permanent as dental treatment can get.

How long does it take to fit a crown?

Fitting a crown requires two visits to our office. Initially, we will remove decay, build-up the tooth, and fit it with a temporary crown.  

On the subsequent visit, we will remove the temporary crown, and then fit and adjust the final all-porcelain crown. Finally, we will cement the crown into place and you have a new beautiful looking tooth.

What are the capabilities of crowns?

Crowns and bridgework are a very reliable solution for major dental problems caused through accidents, diseases or natural wear through the years.  Major problems can usually be corrected using these techniques. We use a high-grade porcelain, or porcelain bonded to gold. A higher strength of the porcelain and gold materials is recommended to treat the most serious of dental problems. Where accidental damage has occurred, resulting in lost teeth, or where teeth have broken away through excessive wear, or as the result of old fillings breaking, crowns and/or bridges can be used as a long-term solution.

Many people have unexplained pain from filled back teeth, which is usually due to hairline cracks in the chewing part of the tooth. Placing crowns on these teeth relieves the pain and allows a return of full chewing function for these teeth. In front teeth, older fillings can both weaken the teeth and cause “appearance” problems due to staining or chipping. Porcelain crowns and bridges are suitable in cases where porcelain veneers are not. In teeth with root canal fillings, crowns can prevent breakage.
