Restoring the appearance, health and function of your teeth is one of our biggest goals at Eastside Smiles, which is why we perform restorative, cosmetic and preventative measures to help you maintain healthy teeth and gums. One dental procedure often performed is the porcelain crown. Crowns completely cap a tooth, so it is offered strength, good health and structure. They are a type of dental restoration that is appropriate for badly decayed teeth that can still be saved, or teeth that need to be aesthetically and structurally improved. Dr. Thomas Hadley has placed porcelain crowns successfully for many patients, and you can trust him to give you quality, natural-looking porcelain crowns that can last for years.
Crowns are available in different materials, but porcelain is a popular choice because it blends well with natural teeth. Porcelain is the same material used for dental veneers. They look and feel natural, so you can smile, talk, and eat without being self-conscious about your crowns. While traditional silver amalgams tend to blacken over time, porcelain crowns look great with age. You get the benefits of both aesthetics and function for many years.
Just like any other crown, porcelain crowns are bonded to the teeth permanently. Dr. Hadley will take impressions of your teeth so that custom-fitted crowns can be created. The right fit is essential, as are proper bonding techniques. Dr. Hadley has the technology and expertise to give you the proper fit, durability and convenience that you need from your dental crowns.
Dental crowns often follow dental procedures like root canal therapy and implant restoration. Crowns are also an option when a tooth needs to be aesthetically improved but cannot be enhanced by a veneer or laminate. The ability of a crown to cap a tooth completely makes it a desired dental procedure for many of your concerns about teeth. Let Dr. Hadley diagnose your condition and see if crowns are an option for your optimum oral health.
