You can erase years of wear and tear with porcelain crowns. Sometimes called “caps,” porcelain crowns are customized for you, covering broken, cracked, or discolored teeth. Crowns are a durable, strong, and long-lasting method of enhancing both the look and functionality of your smile. After some preparation of the tooth or teeth that will receive the crown(s), your dentist will position a custom-milled, natural-looking porcelain crown over your damaged tooth, restoring and rejuvenating your oral health.
When teeth are missing, your smile undergoes significant changes. Missing teeth cause you to chew differently and, may cause mouth pain. Also, as your remaining teeth work to compensate for the loss, gaps and spaces form that only make the situation worse. A porcelain bridge, custom designed by your doctor, keeps your smile aligned and your bite functional. Bridges are anchored to existing teeth or crowns on either side of the missing tooth. They are semi-permanent, meaning they can only be affixed or removed by a dentist, and are a long-term, restorative solution to your damaged smile.
If you’ve previously received crowns at the dentist, you may remember the process requiring at least two dental visits over a two or three week period. Now, with the XXXXXX System, DentalWorks can actually have your crowns designed, created, and positioned in your mouth during one visit!
