Porcelain Tooth Crowns
Westport, Fairfield, Darien and New Canaan, Connecticut
Porcelain tooth crowns are required when there is simply not enough natural tooth structure remaining or to replace old failing or cosmetically inadequate crowns. They’re used to repair chips, cracks and similar damage. Crowns completely cover a damaged tooth. The unsightly metal typically associated with crowns and no longer necessary in crown fabrication. Today, Zirconia oxide cores replace the old metal cores to give you an all porcelain crown that truly looks and feels like a real tooth. They’re custom-created for you to either match your existing teeth or give you a whole new smile.
The crowns are made from an impression of your mouth, so the entire process takes about two or three appointments over the course of a couple of weeks. First the tooth or teeth are prepared, an impression is taken and temporary crowns are placed. The tooth crowns are then designed and fabricated at the laboratory by certified dental technicians. They are typically inserted the following visit.
