Porcelain Crows in Valencia

Dental crowns, also known as caps, refer to a covering material that encases the entire tooth surface in order to restore it to its original size and shape.

Although a tooth-colored cap may be made from porcelain and metal, newly available technology has made it possible to install crowns made entirely of porcelain. Previously, porcelain crowns were built upon a metal core, as this was the only way for the restoration to gain sufficient robustness to withstand the massive biting forces exerted on all your teeth. This metal core resulted in a dark blue line at the edge of the metal and porcelain crown.

Recent breakthroughs in adhesives, as well as the development of stronger porcelain materials have made it possible to make crowns without necessarily placing the metal base.

All-porcelain caps maintain a translucency that makes it hard to distinguish them from natural teeth, and without metal, there is no dark line at the edge of the gums. This, in turn, makes it possible to place the edge of the crown above the gum line, which is healthier for your restored tooth and gums.

Other Benefits of All-Porcelain Crowns:
Protects and strengthens the tooth structure in cases where other restorations are not applicable
Porcelain is highly durable and can last for many years
Their shape, size and color matches that of your teeth, giving you a natural, beautiful smile.

What to Expect from the Procedure
The first visit to your dentist involves reshaping the tooth and taking impressions to create the crown. Typically a portion of you tooth will have to be removed for the crown to fit properly. After the dentist reshapes your tooth, he will use a special material to create an impression of it. This impression will be sent to a dental laboratory to be made into a permanent crown. Before sending you home, the dentist will provide you with a temporary crown to cover your tooth in between visits.

When you return to you dentist, he will have received the permanent crown from the laboratory. He will remove the temporary crown and fit the new permanent one. Before cementing the permanent crown in place, he will ensure that it fits comfortably and matches the color of your teeth.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Dental Crown?

Also called a tooth crown, each one is like a protective hat cemented over a broken or decaying crown tooth that has lost its original shape to make it fully functioning again. They look beautiful in the form of replicating perfect, white teeth for more visible areas or can be slightly sturdier as a pure metal for less visible areas. Porcelain, resin, and ceramic materials are best for a realistic look. Resin can be used to save money but is less durable, while gold is more permanent and tougher than the other types.

Why Would I Need a Dental Crown? 

A dental crown may be needed to effectively bite down on food so you can enjoy your meal without taking too long to break it down and improve your great smile! It improves and protects the existing natural tooth from further decay and potential removal, which is undesirable because natural teeth last longer than artificial ones. This is when a filling would not be effective because the tooth is worn down enough that it could not be held in place.

Pediatric Dental Crowns 

A kid’s tooth crown is temporary when attached to an infected or decaying baby tooth. In this situation, protecting the tooth is even more critical to help the adult tooth grow well. Luckily, young kids are not bothered about their smile’s appearance, but you might be. So it makes sense to treat them like adults with the color choice of their dental crowns. When a kid needs a dental crown from a large cavity in an adult tooth, you would not expect the tooth to fall out naturally, just like other adult teeth. 

Dental Crown Aftercare 

Dental crowns can last for ten years with good care by brushing and flossing your teeth twice a day. Less commonly known is that it is essential to avoid grinding your teeth, clenching your jaw, and consuming hard, brittle food or sticky food that can remain on the tooth for a long time, thus leading to more decay.
