Porcelain Crowns

Porcelain dental crowns are very effective ways of restoring a damaged tooth and improving its appearance. Dental crowns are very commonly performed treatments, and they are often essential to providing your tooth with strong protection and support, or to add the final restoration after a dental implant procedure. Here at Pomerado Cosmetic Dentistry, our experienced dentists utilize advanced CEREC® 3D technology to create custom-designed, natural-looking dental crowns that often require only one office visit.

Benefits of Porcelain Dental Crowns

A dental crown strengthens and improves the function and appearance of a tooth. Patients are often in need of a dental crown for the following reasons:

  • To support a large filling when there isn’t enough tooth remaining
  • To attach a bridge
  • To protect weak teeth from fracturing
  • To restore fractured, chipped, or cracked teeth
  • To restore teeth suffering from severe damage or decay
  • To restore teeth following a root canal procedure
  • To cover a dental implant

Porcelain dental crowns can provide strong support and natural-looking results to address all of the concerns listed above. Plus, with the innovative CEREC® 3D ceramic restoration technology, most patients can receive their customized porcelain dental crown in a single office visit without the need to wait weeks for the crown to be made.

IPS e.max® Dental Crowns

In addition to providing patients with the ability of attaining same-day dental crowns with the CEREC® ceramic restoration technology, Pomerado Cosmetic Dentistry uses advanced IPS e.max® crowns to give you the most natural-looking results possible. In dental crown treatments of the past, the results were often very successful; however, there was often a small but noticeable line at the gum where the crown met the tooth that it was covering. IPS e.max® crowns are made of a lithium disilicate glass ceramic, giving them a near-translucent appearance that makes them blend so well with your natural tooth that it’s almost impossible to tell you are wearing a crown. Plus, IPS e.max® crowns are known for exceptional durability – several times stronger than other ceramic materials – with a significantly reduced chance of breaking or cracking. We employ the IPS e.max® material in all of our dental crown procedures to provide patients with the best possible aesthetic and functional results.

The Dental Crown Procedure

First, our cosmetic dentist will prepare the tooth for the crown and take an impression of the area so that your crown will have the most precise and accurate fit possible. Then, specialized CEREC® 3D imaging software will be used to create the crown. The crown is custom-designed and color-tinted to match your surrounding teeth. It will then be securely attached to the tooth with a very durable cement. For many people, the crown is so lifelike that it’s difficult to tell the difference from the crown and a natural tooth.
