If you have a damaged, decayed, or cracked tooth, a porcelain crown can help restore your tooth's proper size, shape, and strength. Porcelain crowns are a type of dental crown that is made entirely of porcelain or ceramic material. Porcelain crowns are known for their natural-looking appearance and durability, making them a popular choice for many people who are looking to restore their damaged teeth.
The procedure for getting a porcelain crown usually involves multiple visits to our Bellesmere Dental office. During the first visit, our dental team at Scarborough will prepare the damaged tooth by removing any decayed or damaged parts, shaping the remaining tooth structure, and taking an impression of the tooth. This impression will create a custom-made porcelain crown in a dental laboratory.
During the second visit, our Scarborough dentist will place the porcelain crown onto the prepared tooth and check to make sure that it fits correctly and matches the surrounding teeth. Once the fit and appearance are satisfactory, the crown is permanently bonded onto the tooth using a dental adhesive.
We at Bellesmere Dental office are happy to help you make the best decision for your teeth and oral health!
