The Benefits of Porcelain Crowns

March 27, 2018

You may feel self-conscious about your smile, but may not know what your options are when it comes to improving the appearance and health of your teeth. When you have one or more teeth that are damaged, cracked or broken, you may be a candidate for a dental crown.

Crowns are used to improve the strength and appearance of a weakening tooth. A crown fits over the damaged tooth, restoring it to its natural structure. When fabricated carefully and customized for you, porcelain crowns can look completely natural. If you require a dental crown, there is only one decision that you will have to make: what material to use.

How Are Porcelain Crowns Different?

Dr. Weaver uses porcelain crowns to restore your smile because it closely mimics your natural tooth enamel. Not only is it aesthetically pleasing, but porcelain is durable enough to serve the needs of most patients.

Porcelain crowns do not contain any metal, which means that your restoration will not have mercury or potential allergens in it. You can also expect your crowns to last upwards of 20 years with proper oral hygiene.

Are Crowns Right for You?

Dr. Weaver can help you determine whether porcelain crowns are right for you. During an examination, Dr. Weaver will evaluate the condition of your teeth and identify any underlying concerns. If he determines that a crown is the best option, he will begin the treatment process.

Crowns are ideal for those who have a single tooth that has weakened either due to trauma or decay. Dr. Weaver uses CEREC technology to fabricate your crowns, making it easy for you to receive the care you need under one roof. CEREC allows you to restore your teeth in a matter of hours as opposed to waiting weeks for the final product.
