When you come to Progressive Dental Buffalo Speedway for a checkup about a cavity, your dentist will assess the damage and see if you just need a filling that matches your tooth color or if your tooth has extensive decay or a fracture, the dentist may recommend placing a white crown. Designed to restore strength, function, and appearance, a porcelain crown fits snugly over the remaining healthy tooth structure.
Porcelain crowns provide the most realistic results possible. A porcelain crown will be matched to the rest of the teeth, providing a natural, uniform look. Porcelain crowns not only reflect light, but they mimic the transparency found in natural teeth. We place the tooth-shaded margin at or above the gum line, reduce the risk of gum irritation and prevent gum recession, and you won’t notice a dark line at the gums as you would with a porcelain fused to metal crown (PFM).
What to Expect
Before a crown is placed, the patient is given anesthesia to make the procedure more comfortable. Patients can also opt to use sedation to help them relax further. Then, the tooth that will receive the crown must be prepared; some tooth structure will likely need to be removed to make room for the crown. After the tooth is prepared, Dr. Silverman will take impressions which will be sent to a lab and used to make the permanent crown. In the meantime, a temporary one will be provided. Once the permanent crown is ready, it will be cemented to the remaining tooth structure.
Onlays, often called partial crowns, offer a conservative alternative to a full crown in some situations. Unlike traditional porcelain crowns, onlays, end half way up the tooth, which prevents plaque formation at the margin of the tooth and gum. Your dentist will evaluate your case to determine whether a full ceramic crown or onlay will offer the best restoration and bring you that stunning smile..
