Am I a Candidate for Porcelain Crowns?
Porcelain crowns are the best choice for improving the function and appearance of badly damaged teeth. Porcelain crowns will make your mouth look proportionate and your teeth whiter. In addition, crowns will improve your chewing ability.
Dental crowns are fixed structures used in cases when the tooth is 50 percent or more damaged. In such cases, placement of porcelain veneers is not very helpful; porcelain crowns are a better choice.
When performing the porcelain crown procedure, a Clínica Gadea Ramírez dentist tailor-makes the dental crowns for each porcelain crowns patient using the same durable material used to make porcelain veneers. The crowns are then attached to the surface of the teeth with a special adhesive that makes it nearly impossible to lose the crowns. Porcelain crowns can be placed on either the front or the back teeth. Once in place, the crowns simulate the original anatomy of the tooth, restoring resistance and eliminating pain.
The process of manufacturing and placing porcelain crowns is very similar to the placement of porcelain veneers. However, the placement of crowns is a little more difficult because the doctor has to remove more dental structure to replace it with a perfectly fitting crown. To learn more about porcelain veneers, contact one of our experienced cosmetic dentists – Dr. Rodolfo Gadea, Dr. Marisel Ramirez, or Dr. Magali Carvajal.
