Porcelain Crowns
Fort Worth, TX


Rendering of jaw with dental crown provided by HomeTown Dental at Alliance Dental crowns are caps that are used to cover teeth that get damaged due to injury, decay or overuse. Crowns restore tooth damage when fillings prove to be inadequate.

Dental crowns are surgically placed in a way that they cover the visible part of your tooth. They can be made out of porcelain, metals, resin and ceramics.

Do You Need A Dental Crown?


There are several reasons why you may need a crown, including:
•  Protecting a weak tooth against decay or damage.
•  Protecting a cracked or broken tooth from breaking apart.
•  Keeping a dental bridge in position.
•  Covering the remnants of a tooth supported by large fillings.
•  Protecting a tooth that has undergone root canal treatment.
•  Covering a dental implant.
•  Covering discolored teeth.


What Are Porcelain Crowns?


Porcelain crowns are best for restoring front teeth. They are translucent and therefore can easily be matched to your natural tooth color in size, shape, and color. These crowns are biocompatible, which implies that they do not contain any metals. If you have a fractured tooth, large fillings, decayed tooth, or a tooth with a root canal, you are an ideal candidate for a porcelain crown.

Benefits of Porcelain Crowns


Here are some of the prime benefits of opting for porcelain crowns:

Appearance


Porcelain crowns are virtually indistinguishable from your natural teeth, unlike gold or silver crowns. Crowns made of porcelain can be blended to look just like one of your original teeth. People are unlikely to spot your crown even if you open your mouth wide.

Durable


Porcelain crowns can last a decade or more. The amount of time they stay in place depends upon your oral habits. If you brush your teeth regularly and take good care of your overall oral hygiene, your porcelain crown can even last a lifetime without needing to be replaced.

Good Fit


These crowns are much more snug-fit than their metallic counterparts. They are also smaller and more lightweight in comparison. Porcelain crowns also have the advantage of being rather comfortable. They can be created in any shape or size to ensure perfect fitting.

Bite Force Restoration


Not being able to bite and chew properly due to damaged teeth can greatly affect your quality of life. Crowns help restore your bite force. After getting a crown in place, you can continue consuming your favorite foods and beverages without being concerned about pain or discomfort.

Crowns made out of porcelain can be made to look just like your natural teeth and last a long time without the need for replacement. The best way to figure out whether these crowns are right for you is to schedule a consultation at our practice. We also offer other cosmetic dentistry services like dental bonding and veneers.
