Everybody wants or desires to have a bright and beautiful smile. At Detailed Dental Care, we have just the right option that can improve the appearance of your teeth and in the process enable you to have a beautiful smile. Take the first step to visit our offices and get the right treatment for your smile. If you are thinking about whether or not porcelain crowns are good for your aesthetics, you can trust our dental experts to give you all of the relevant information required for you to make an informed decision.
What Are Porcelain Crowns?
Porcelain crowns are caps that are fitted on top of your teeth. These caps resemble the appearance of your teeth, and can therefore improve the appearance of damaged teeth. Material that is used to make porcelain crowns also mimics the feel of natural teeth and therefore looks natural. You need an experienced cosmetic dentist to fit the dental crowns. Since people have different teeth, our dentists make sure to personalize your treatment so that you get porcelain crowns that will cover the entirety of your tooth perfectly.
Are You a Candidate For a Porcelain Crown?
Porcelain crowns are excellent if you have fractured fillings, broken teeth, decayed teeth, or simply for cosmetic improvement. Therefore, if you have teeth that are physically painful and are denying you the chance to achieve a bright smile, then you can come to our practice for effective care and management.
What to Expect During Your Initial Appointment
During the initial visit, you can expect to get examined to determine whether you are a candidate for a porcelain crown. The dentist can therefore take an impression of your teeth to get the precise mold of your teeth so that they can produce custom-made crowns which will be fitted during your second appointment.
Are Porcelain Crowns Painful?
The dentist will use local anesthesia when you are undergoing porcelain crown treatment. Temporary crowns are placed after the first session as you wait for the porcelain crowns to be placed. There can be discomfort in the location where the crown was placed. You will not feel pain, however, because the permanent crown is done under local anesthesia and topical numbing agents are used.
After placing the permanent crown the gums may be sore for a short while, and for that reason, you should eat soft foods for a few days after your crown placement. Your new porcelain crowns will provide a platform to give you beautiful teeth after the others have cracked or chipped.
Porcelain crowns are a treatment option that our dental team at Detailed Dental Care is happy to offer to you. Porcelain crowns are not invasive and they will give you a better smile. We are dedicated to offering you personalized care. Schedule an appointment by calling us at (516) 875-6774.
