Porcelain Dental Crowns in Langhorne, PA
A crown (or cap) is a covering that encases the entire tooth surface restoring it to its original shape and size. A crown protects and strengthens tooth structure that cannot be restored with fillings or other types of restorations
Although there are several types of crowns, porcelain (tooth colored crown) are the most popular, because they resemble your natural teeth. They are highly durable and will last many years, but like most dental restorations, they may eventually need to be replaced. Porcelain crowns are made to match the shape, size, and color or your teeth giving you a natural, long-lasting beautiful smile.
Reasons for a Crown
What Does Getting a Porcelain Dental Crown Involve?
A crown procedure usually requires two appointments.
Appointment 1: While your tooth is numb, our dentist will prepare the tooth by removing any decay and shaping the surface to properly fit the future crown. A mold or impression of the tooth or teeth is taken and a temporary restoration (temporary crown) will be placed before you walk out of our office.
At this appointment, our highly trained dentists at Oxford Valley Dental Excellence will do what they do best. Sit with you and design your new tooth. Here, they will select things such as shape, size, color, characteristics of each individual crown, etc…
Appointment 2: On the second visit, our doctors will first get your approval of your crown on the model before proceeding to give you a test run in your mouth. Once you and your dentist have with 100% satisfaction accepted the entirety of the crown in your mouth, then only will we proceed with the final cementation process. (If you are unhappy with any, we mean, any aspect of your crown, we will simply resolve it in our office or send it back to the lab for modifications before the cementation process.)
At this stage, the bite is checked and all necessary adjustments for the crown is made. The crown is then polished and cemented on your tooth with a very strong dental cement. All cements are than cleaned up.
