Porcelain Dental Crowns
Porcelain dental crowns are a great option for teeth restoration. They resemble and function as natural teeth while restoring weak, discolored, and damaged teeth. At Weston Dental Specialists, we use the best quality materials, state of the art equipment and world renowned lab technicians in order to archive the most natural esthetic result. Your dental crown is color matched and applied to look and fit natural. A dental crown can be placed over an existing tooth or be used along with a dental implant and dental bridge.
How long can a porcelain dental crown last?
Dental crowns can last about 5 to 15 years. Proper care and maintenance will always improve longevity. Brush, floss, and rinse as recommended. Visit us for routine exams and dental cleanings. If you suffer from teeth clenching or grinding, we recommend using a mouth guard. Excessive pressure can loosen, chip, or break the dental crown.
Will I need porcelain dental crowns if some of my teeth are discolored?
Discoloration can be surface stains which may be removed with dental cleanings and teeth whitening. However, some discolorations are below the surface and need an alternative solution like a dental crown. During your consultation, we will examine your teeth and determine if discoloration can be resolved with teeth cleaning and whitening. If not, we will explore the option for dental crowns.
