Dark and unattractive, old crowns can make you feel self-conscious when you smile. Traditional metallic crowns can leave teeth and gum lines discolored.
Thanks to breakthroughs and the development of stronger porcelain materials, Dr. Schneider can create beautiful tooth-colored crowns with porcelain. Porcelain crowns blend with the natural color of your teeth and eliminate the discoloration that the metallic solutions of yesterday created.
Additionally, porcelain crowns keep teeth and gums healthier than their metallic counter-parts because of where and how they are placed. Feel free to smile and laugh with confidence thanks these beautiful tooth-colored restorative solutions.
Crown Placement – What to Expect
Crowns are placed on teeth that require restoration as a result of decay or trauma. Porcelain crowns are often used to replace old restorations made of metal and mercury.
When preparing a tooth for crowning, Dr. Schneider sculpts the top of your tooth. Once the tooth’s surface is prepared Dr. Schneider make in impression of the tooth and sends the impression to his dental laboratory where a custom crown is created to fit your tooth precisely.
