Porcelain Crowns
Sherman, TX


Rendering of jaw with dental crownDental crowns are coverings for teeth that get damaged as a result of decay, injury, or overuse. Crowns fix tooth damage when fillings tend to be insufficient.

When fixed in place, dental crowns cover the part of the tooth that is visible above the gum line. Crowns can be made of porcelain, metal, porcelain-fused-to-metal, resin, or pressed ceramic. At HomeTown Dental at Sherman, experienced professionals like Dr. Reddy and Dr. Reddy will help you make the right decision.

Do You Need A Dental Crown?


There are many reasons why you may require a crown, including:
•  Protecting a weak tooth against decay or damage.
•  Protecting a weak tooth from disintegrating, or holding parts of a cracked tooth in place.
•  Safeguarding a broken or worn down tooth.
•  Supporting a tooth with a substantial amount of filling, especially when not much of the tooth is left.
•  Keeping a dental bridge in place.
•  Protecting a tooth that has been through root canal surgery.
•  Covering a dental implant.
•  Cosmetic modification.
•  Fixing misshapen or discolored teeth.


What Are Porcelain Crowns?


Porcelain crowns are a cosmetic dentistry treatment most suitable for restoring front teeth. They are typically translucent and can be designed to resemble your original tooth color. Porcelain crowns are biocompatible, which means that they are devoid of metals. If you already have large fillings, a fractured tooth, a decayed tooth, or a tooth that has been through a root canal, you are a good candidate for a porcelain crown.

Benefits of Porcelain Crowns


Here are some of the major advantages of selecting porcelain crowns to fix tooth damage:

Appearance


Porcelain crowns are virtually unnoticeable, unlike gold or silver crowns. Crowns made of porcelain can be customized to look just like one of your natural teeth. Non-dentists may be unable to identify your crown even with your mouth wide open.

Cost-Effective


Porcelain crowns offer an affordable solution. Gold and silver crowns are not only costly, but are sometimes not even preferred by people. Composite resin is often cheaper than porcelain, but is not durable enough and you may need to get it repaired from time to time. Therefore, gold, silver, and resin crowns can eventually cost a higher amount than porcelain crowns.

Durable


Porcelain crowns can stay functional for a decade or more. The length of time they keep working properly depends upon your oral habits. If you brush your teeth daily and maintain good oral habits, your porcelain crown can stay in place for a lifetime without requiring replacement.

Good Fit


These crowns are a better fit than their metallic equivalents. They are also smaller in size and more lightweight. Porcelain crowns also have the benefit of being quite comfortable. They can be designed in any shape or size to guarantee proper fitting.

Bite Force Restoration


Being unable to bite and chew normally due to damaged teeth can substantially impact your quality of life. Crowns help improve an affected bite force. After getting a crown in position, you can continue consuming all sorts of foods and drinks without being worried about toothache or discomfort.

Crowns made out of porcelain can be customized to resemble your natural teeth and last for a long period without requiring replacement.
