This is why the most preferred material for crowns is porcelain or porcelain and metal. The combination of materials can provide the benefits of strength and looks together.
Do you need a dental crown?
You may benefit from a porcelain crown if:
- Your teeth have large fillings
- You have had a root canal
- Your tooth is broken
- Your tooth is misshapen or discolored
- You are missing teeth
What can you expect during porcelain crown procedure?
The procedure for placement of a porcelain crown usually occurs over more than one visit to the dentist. This is mainly because it takes time to prepare the crown in a customized form. The dentist will examine your tooth to make sure it can support a crown.
If she finds it to be too large or small, the dentist may trim down or fill up your tooth to fit a porcelain crown. The dentist will then take an impression of the tooth and write an order for the porcelain crown. The next visit will be for fitting the crown in place.
The cost of the procedure may vary depending on the type of filling or trimming the dentist has to do.
