Restore your teeth with natural-looking, all porcelain dental crowns in Paxton, MA
Despite good oral hygiene and preventive care, sometimes a tooth may become compromised and require a dental crown restoration. At Paxton Dental Care, patients in the Paxton and Worcester, MA area can restore their teeth with natural-looking, all porcelain dental crowns.
Benefits of porcelain crowns
Whether you need a crown for a broken tooth, after root canal therapy, to place on top of a dental implant, or another reason, porcelain crowns (also called white teeth caps or ceramic teeth) are a great choice for protecting your tooth from future damage and restoring its full function. Porcelain crowns are:
- Natural-looking – the tooth-colored porcelain blends in seamlessly with your smile and has the same luminosity as natural teeth
- Durable and long-lasting – modern dental ceramics are nearly as strong as natural tooth enamel
- Convenient – for patients interested in same-day crowns, we offer CEREC technology to mill your porcelain crown while you wait
- Functional – dental crowns restore the appearance, health, and feel of your natural teeth so that you can smile, eat, and speak with confidence
The crown placement process
The key steps for placing a crown are the same whether you choose a traditional crown or a same-day CEREC crown. First, Dr. Scott Siemen will prepare the tooth by shaping it so that your crown will fit in with the rest of your smile. Then, impressions are taken of your teeth so that the crown can be custom-fabricated, either in a laboratory (which generally requires a wait of approximately two weeks) or in the office using CEREC technology while you wait. If you are getting a traditional crown, Dr. Siemen will place a temporary crown to protect your tooth while the crown is being fabricated. When your new crown is ready, Dr. Siemen will try it on your tooth and check to ensure it has the perfect fit before cementing it onto your tooth with a durable bonding agent.
