At smilebuilderz, there are so many great things we could tell you about porcelain crowns. That’s why we decided to dedicate this first March blog to crowns so that we could tell you a little bit about how they work and why they’re so important in dentistry and at our Lancaster and Ephrata dental offices.
What’s a Porcelain Crown?
You might have heard porcelain crowns referred to as “caps” in the past because they completely cover a damaged tooth all the way down to the gum line. This means no one knows that’s not your actual tooth. Our porcelain crowns are carefully crafted to look and feel like your natural teeth, so everything blends seamlessly into a gorgeous, whole smile that gets you noticed for all the right reasons.
Why We Use Dental Crowns
We’re both restorative and cosmetic dentists in Lancaster who don’t mind recommending porcelain crowns as part of a treatment plan when the time is right. They are some of the most versatile and aesthetically pleasing restorations that smilebuilderz offers our Lancaster-area patients. Our dental crowns are created from the purest, strongest dental-grade porcelain, offering beauty, renewal, and revitalization to almost any smile. Your smilebuilderz cosmetic dentist in Lancaster might recommend a crown for you to:
- Create an entirely new tooth surface for badly worn or broken teeth
- Strengthen and repair major cracks
- Make cosmetic corrections on load-bearing or posterior teeth
- Replace large metal fillings that have compromised tooth structure
- Seal and protect your tooth after a root canal
- Hold a dental bridge in place to replace one or more missing teeth
- Top a dental implant post for the most handsome and functional tooth replacement available
Your crown will be created just for you at one of our special world-class laboratories so that it will be sure to match your smile and increase your self-confidence.
Do you have a tooth that could use some attention? Do you have one that’s missing and want a replacement tooth? Please call us at (717) 481-7645 to schedule a consultation. We’ll give you a comprehensive exam and the chance to ask any questions you may have about your oral health and how we can improve it — together!
