Porcelain Crowns In Austin TX
In some circumstances, a simple filling can’t repair a tooth. In these situations, Dr. Logan Miller will often recommend that a porcelain crown be used instead. These attractive and durable appliances are designed to completely cover the surface of the affected tooth – right down to the gum line. Years ago, most crowns were made of metal, making them quite noticeable in a person’s mouth. But over the past several years, porcelain crowns have become much more popular. These durable dental appliances can be made to very closely match the color of your existing teeth, which makes them much harder to detect than the old-fashioned metal variety. We are pleased to offer same-day porcelain crowns to our patients from throughout the Austin, TX, area.
Important Information About Porcelain Crowns
Porcelain crowns may sound delicate, but they’re anything but! Unlike the fragile pieces of china you may be picturing, the porcelain used in dental crowns is incredibly strong and resilient. Plus, its color can be customized to perfectly match the other teeth in your smile. With the right care, a porcelain crown will last many years, protecting your tooth from further damage and decay.
Not only are porcelain crowns aesthetically pleasing, but they also offer a fantastic layer of protection. The crown is custom-fit to the tooth, forming a tight seal to guard against further harm. And, it can help to reinforce the tooth and make it less prone to breakage.
So if you need to restore a damaged tooth, porcelain crowns are an excellent choice. Not only will they give you a beautiful, natural smile, they’ll provide you with long-lasting protection and stability – something you can rely on for years to come.
The Porcelain Crown Procedure
The process of getting a new porcelain crown, all in one appointment, starts with our team taking a digital impression of your existing tooth. This impression will be utilized to fabricate your new crown. Next, Dr. Miller will get rid of any decay on the affected tooth, followed by a thorough cleaning of the surface. After your tooth is ready, Dr. Miller will apply the crafted crown and make sure it fits correctly, providing optimal comfort and functionality. To get the perfect fit, he may make some small adjustments to the crown. Finally, he will put on a finishing material and give you instructions for the proper care and maintenance of your new porcelain crown. With the proper care and maintenance, it should last for many years.
