Natural looking Tooth Repair for the Jackson Area
A porcelain crown is used to help a dentist like Dr. Germany restore the strength and functionality of a cracked, decayed, or otherwise damaged tooth. Crowns can be made from a variety of materials, but the most common of these is porcelain. That’s because porcelain is a durable material that closely resembles the appearance of natural enamel. As a result, a patient who has a tooth restored with a porcelain crown can look forward to a more functional smile that also looks natural.
How Do Porcelain Crowns Restore Strength and Functionality?
Porcelain crowns are a permanent restorative dentistry option. They work by fitting over the tooth that needs to be restored, shielding it from further harm and protecting both and its root from extraction. As a result you can keep more of your natural smile, ensuring that your smile’s foundation—the jaw—remains strong and supportive.
Porcelain Crowns for Jackson, Brandon and Beyond
Do you have a tooth that has experienced decay or is physically damaged in some way? Germany Dental is committed to helping patients from Brandon, Jackson, Madison, and Flowood achieve optimal oral health through custom-made and custom-shaded porcelain crowns.
The entire porcelain crown process takes at least two visits to complete. During your first appointment at our Brandon dental office, near Jackson, Dr. Germany will prep your tooth by removing decay and re-sculpting the tooth. This will make it easier for us to fit your brand new porcelain crown over your existing tooth. Then, to finish your first appointment at our Brandon dental office, Dr. Germany will create a temporary crown for you to wear while our lab makes your permanent one.
After your porcelain crown has been carefully crafted by our lab, you’ll return to Dr. Germany’s dental office in Brandon to have your procedure completed. The final steps of a porcelain crown procedure involve the removal of the temporary crown and the placement of your brand new one. To secure your new crown, Dr. Germany will cement it into place. With that done, your porcelain crown procedure will be complete and you’ll be ready leave our Brandon office and take your new smile out into the world to share with others.
