What Are Porcelain Dental Crowns?

Porcelain dental crowns, often simply called caps, are used to fully cover a tooth that has been damaged by decay or injury. Unlike other materials, porcelain is favored for crowns because of its strong resemblance to natural tooth enamel. This material is not only durable but also aesthetically pleasing, ensuring that your new crown strengthens your tooth while enhancing your smile’s natural beauty.

The Benefits of Choosing Porcelain Crowns

Choosing porcelain crowns from HSM Dental Group comes with numerous benefits:

  • Aesthetic Appeal: Porcelain mimics the natural luster of your teeth, blending seamlessly with your smile.
  • Durability: These crowns are crafted to withstand the rigors of daily chewing and biting, protecting your teeth from further damage.
  • Biocompatibility: Porcelain is kind to your gums and does not cause any allergic reactions, making it an excellent choice for most patients.

Comprehensive Care by Dr. Halina Montano

Dr. Halina Montano is committed to ensuring that every aspect of your care is handled with precision and empathy. From the initial consultation to the placement of your final crown, her approach is thorough and tailored to meet your individual needs. Here are some additional applications for porcelain crowns:

  • Protection After Root Canal Therapy: Crowns are the final step in the root canal process, protecting the restored tooth.
  • Anchoring Dental Bridges: Crowns can serve as stable anchors for dental bridges.
  • Completing Dental Implants: A crown is the finishing touch on a dental implant, providing a functional chewing surface and cosmetic improvement.
  • Enhancing Smile Aesthetics: Whether it’s to correct a misshapen tooth or improve the overall appearance of your smile, porcelain crowns are an excellent choice.

The Porcelain Crown Procedure at HSM Dental Group

The procedure for placing a porcelain crown typically involves two appointments. During your first visit, Dr. Montano and her team will prepare your tooth and take impressions, which are used to custom-make your crown to fit perfectly. A temporary crown is placed to protect your tooth while your permanent crown is being crafted. On your second visit, the permanent crown is securely fitted, restoring your tooth to its optimal shape and function.
