If you have an infected tooth, need root canal therapy, or have a serious cavity that cannot be treated with a filling, you may need a porcelain crown to restore your smile. At Brite Clean Smiles, we create advanced porcelain crowns that look and feel completely natural. Whether you need a new porcelain crown for restorative purposes or you are interested in replacing an existing gold or steel crown with a more natural-looking alternative, we can help!
Porcelain crowns are used to cover up damaged or misshapen teeth and protect the underlying structure and they are crafted to match the shade of your surrounding teeth. Porcelain is very similar to tooth enamel in texture, color, and appearance. This means that a porcelain crown is the best way to restore your smile without changing how you look! The material is also very durable and does not stain, giving it a long lifespan and keeping your tooth bright and white.
The placement process is minimally invasive and performed under a local anesthetic, and it usually only takes two appointments. At your first appointment, digital images and impressions will be taken of your teeth. To prepare your tooth for the application of a crown, Dr. Girgis will remove some of your enamel to create a stable, solid platform to which the crown can be attached.
The Images and impressions will be sent to a third-party lab, and your prepared tooth will be covered with a temporary dental crown. The lab will manufacture a beautiful, custom-made crown that matches your existing tooth perfectly.
At your last appointment, your tooth will be cleaned and Dr. Girgis will check the crown for perfect fit, color, and appearance. Then, the crown is bonded into place with a powerful, permanent dental adhesive. You'll leave our office with a beautifully restored tooth!
Porcelain crowns have a number of benefits when compared to metal or mercury-amalgam crowns. Here are just a few reasons to choose porcelain crowns from Brite Clean Smiles:
