At EGil Dental, we are committed to providing our patients with the highest quality dental care, ensuring that every visit leaves you smiling with confidence. One of our specialized services is the creation and placement of porcelain crowns, a durable and aesthetic solution for damaged or weakened teeth.
Discover the Benefits of Porcelain Crowns
Porcelain crowns are a popular choice for restoring teeth, and it’s easy to see why. These crowns mimic the natural appearance of your teeth, providing a seamless blend with your smile. They are made from high-quality ceramic materials, ensuring longevity and strength. Unlike other types of crowns, porcelain crowns are resistant to staining, allowing you to enjoy your favorite foods and drinks without worry.
When Do You Need a Porcelain Crown?
Porcelain crowns are versatile and can be used in a variety of dental situations. They are an excellent option for restoring a tooth that has been significantly damaged due to decay or injury. If you have a tooth that is cracked or broken, a porcelain crown can hold the tooth together and prevent further damage. Additionally, these crowns are often used after root canal therapy to strengthen the treated tooth.
For individuals with worn down teeth, either from grinding or natural wear and tear, porcelain crowns can restore the teeth to their original size and shape, enhancing both function and appearance. They are also a popular choice for covering discolored or misshapen teeth, providing a cosmetic improvement to your smile.
The Porcelain Crown Procedure at EGil Dental
At EGil Dental, we ensure that the process of getting a porcelain crown is as smooth and comfortable as possible. The procedure typically requires two visits to our office.
During the first visit, Dr. Eduardo Gil or Dr. Gabriela Gil will prepare the tooth for the crown. This involves removing any decay and shaping the tooth to ensure a proper fit for the crown. Impressions of the tooth are then taken and sent to our dental lab where your custom crown will be created. A temporary crown will be placed to protect your tooth while your permanent crown is being made.
On your second visit, the temporary crown is removed, and the permanent porcelain crown is securely placed and adjusted for a perfect fit and bite. Our doctors take great care to ensure that the color of the crown matches your natural teeth, providing a seamless and natural-looking result.
Caring for Your Porcelain Crown
With proper care, your porcelain crown can last for many years. It’s important to practice good oral hygiene, including regular brushing and flossing. Be sure to visit EGil Dental for regular check-ups and cleanings to ensure the longevity of your crown and overall oral health.
While porcelain crowns are durable, it’s important to avoid habits that can damage them, such as chewing on hard objects or using your teeth to open packages. If you grind your teeth at night, our team at EGil Dental can provide you with a night guard to protect your crown and natural teeth.
