What Steps Are Expected When Getting a Porcelain Crown?
A dental crown is a great option for preserving your natural tooth while protecting the integrity of your root structure. Your team at Bright Smiles Family Dentistry in Pflugerville uses the highest quality dental materials when fabricating your all-porcelain crowns to ensure that you receive a restoration you can rely on and be proud of for years to come.
Here's all you need to know about getting a porcelain crown:
When Do I Need a Crown?
When your tooth sustains more fracture or injury than a dental filling can repair, our doctors will recommend a crown for you. A crown is designed to fit over your natural tooth like a "cap" so it preserves your remaining tooth structure and root while providing the full function you had with your natural tooth.
Your crown is custom shaded to match your existing teeth and can be cared for with regular brushing and flossing, just as you did before.
How Does the Process Work?
You'll visit our office for a preparation appointment during which our doctors will take impressions, ready your tooth for your new crown, and give you a temporary crown to wear while your final restoration is being fabricated. We work with the top dental laboratories in the area to create the highest quality restorations for our patients.
After a week or two, your final restoration will be permanently placed and you'll be able to enjoy your new tooth.
