Understanding porcelain crowns
Drs. Frank Rosner and Laura Pepa find that dental crowns are a versatile solution for a variety of issues. These restorations, sometimes referred to by patients as “caps,” are common in everyday dentistry. They cover the exposed part of the tooth to add protection to strengthen a natural tooth after damage or treatment. For example, patients who have undergone root canal therapy may want to place a dental crown over the tooth because it can become weak and brittle due to the loss of the dental pulp from inside. Other patients who have large fillings placed in their teeth may need a crown to act as an extra layer of protection and strength to keep the vulnerable tooth from further damage. Dental crowns are essential in addressing a variety of dental issues.
Because we use porcelain to create dental crowns, patients can also rest easy knowing their restoration is natural-looking. Cosmetic dental work is important to us, as we want our patients to look and feel their best. Restorative dentistry solutions that look like the natural teeth will ensure that patients do not look as though they’ve had work done. We want patients to smile and feel confident that they have a natural, beautiful appearance.
Benefits of dental crowns
Porcelain crowns have several advantages. They are:
- Easy to care for
Additionally, many of our patients will find that their dental insurance will provide coverage for dental crowns when needed for restorative care.
Why have porcelain crowns placed by LaserDentalAssociates.com
Patients have access to a variety of dental practices in Sterling Heights, MI. However, there is one specific aspect of dentistry that sets the team at LaserDentalAssociates.com apart from the others. Our practice offers state-of-the-art technology called CEREC that can be used in fabricating restorations. CEREC is a specialized CAD/CAM system that is utilized in advanced dentistry practices for creating restorations. This device allows our dentists to create restorations such as dental crowns in-house. In a traditional dental setting, patients often need to wait several weeks after preparations and impressions to receive their dental crowns from a conventional dental laboratory. Fortunately, patients in our practice can enjoy same-day restorations with our CEREC technology. The tooth is prepared with the removal of natural tooth enamel from the tooth’s structure, and then digitized impressions are converted into the CAD/CAM software. A block of porcelain that matches the color of the patient’s natural teeth is then placed into the machine, and a dental crown is milled out in approximately 15 minutes. The patient relaxes until the crown is complete and ready for bonding in place. If there are any changes that need to be made, they can be made immediately without having to wait another few weeks for a ceramist to complete. Errors are greatly reduced, as well as the time spent in the dental chair. We understand how busy our patients are in their day-to-day life and don’t want to waste any more time than necessary! With CEREC technology, same-day restorations are a reality, and we are proud to have invested in this modern technology to change the way patients look at restoring their smiles.
