Porcelain Crowns

A crown is a cover or “cap” your dentist can put over a tooth that restores the tooth to its normal shape, size, and function. A crown can make the tooth stronger and improves the way it looks.

Porcelain crowns can effectively restore a patient’s smile in a way that is more aesthetically-pleasing than traditional porcelain-fused-to-metal options. At Ramona Dental Group, we offer a range of dental options specific to crowns that will help to restore your smile in a way that allows you to feel confident in your appearance. Before having a porcelain crown placed, a thorough examination will be done as well as a consultation to determine which option is right for you.

Why choose Porcelain Crowns?

Porcelain crowns mimic the look and feel of real teeth, making them a viable option for people who want to correct their smile without the bulk of metal. They are thinner in nature than porcelain-fused-to-metal, so they are especially ideal for areas where a thinner crown is needed. Before having the crown placed, an examination and x-ray will be taken, and impressions are made so that the porcelain crown matches your smile perfectly. Once the crown has been made, the dentists will apply a dental cement onto the crown and place it on your tooth or abutment securely. It is then smoothed of any rough areas and you are able to regain the tooth’s structure and durability.

Who is a good candidate for Porcelain Crowns?

Most people are viable candidates for porcelain crowns and can easily have them created and placed in order to improve the look of their smile. Some of the reasons you may want to consider having porcelain crowns placed include:

  • You need a thinner crown for smaller or tight teeth
  • You want a metal-free crown option
  • You want to avoid the metal band at the gum line with traditional crowns
  • You’re looking for a durable, long-lasting crown that matches perfectly with your smile
  • You want to have a crown that blends perfectly with your natural teeth

Porcelain crowns are custom created especially for you, and are designed to match the patient’s smile and provide a seamless look to their teeth. Porcelain is also incredibly long-lasting and durable and can withstand a lot of pressure, making the material ideal for crowns and bridge work alike.
