Crowns in Union, NJ

Dental crowns allow you to cover a tooth that has been damaged by trauma or decay. Our doctors in Union use crowns to completely cover a tooth and protect it from further damage, dental crowns may spare you the expense of having to undergo more involved procedures if the tooth is left untreated and restore a beautiful, natural-looking smile. Porcelain dental crowns are a natural-looking way to cover a tooth that has been damaged by trauma or decay. Porcelain very closely resembles natural tooth enamel and can be color-matched to your surrounding teeth by a cosmetic dentist. In Union, our payment plans, discounts, and flexible options can help you with the cost of crowns and will allow you to get your smile back.

Restore Your Teeth with Porcelain Crowns

Porcelain crowns are caps shaped like natural teeth that can be a smart solution for patients with chipped, stained, decayed or worn teeth–particularly those with too little tooth left to hold a filling. If you’d like to return your teeth to their naturally beautiful appearance, ask your dentist for an evaluation to see whether porcelain crowns are the right choice for restoring your damaged teeth.

Why patients choose porcelain crowns.

Our American Dental Center patients choose porcelain crown placement to resolve a wide range of common problems. For some, it’s a simple matter of correcting a less than perfect smile due to broken, chipped, or cracked teeth. For others, porcelain crowns can be used to fill gaps between teeth or to reshape a misaligned tooth. In still other cases, patients choose porcelain crowns as a simple cover-up for their stained or discolored teeth.

How porcelain crowns work.

Porcelain crowns are custom shaped to look and act like your natural teeth. Your dentist will fit your new porcelain crown over what is left of your existing tooth, so that the crown encases the entire tooth surface above the gum line. Your crown will then be cemented in place, concealing the natural, damaged tooth underneath.

The benefits of porcelain vs. metal crowns.

Crowns can be made of many different materials, such as metal, porcelain or a combination of the two. Porcelain, however, can be shaped and fitted to closely resemble your natural tooth shape and size. Porcelain is also stronger than other crown materials, so crowns made from it will typically last longer, too. For these reasons, porcelain has become the preferred crown material for the majority of dentists.

The fitting process for crowns.

The preparation for a porcelain crown is the same as that for crowns made of other materials. In most cases, you will need to make two visits to your dental office. During your first visit, the dentist will take an impression of the tooth in need of the crown. The impression will then be sent to a lab where the crown will be sculpted to its exact specifications. The impression ensures that the crown will perfectly fit your unique jaw shape and bite. Your American Dental Center dentist may recommend a temporary crown until your new permanent crown can be placed.

The fitting process for porcelain crowns.

When you return to the American Dental Center office for your second visit, your new custom-made crown will be placed over your problem tooth and cemented securely in place. You may need to return for follow-up visits to adjust the fit for comfort. Afterward, your porcelain crown should provide improved appearance, but with all the same functionality as a natural, undamaged tooth.

Why dentists prefer porcelain crowns.

dentists prefer porcelain crowns because they are extremely durable and have a translucent quality that closely resembles natural teeth. If your teeth are cracked, damaged, badly stained, or make you self-conscious, a porcelain crown can help restore your smile to its original luster. The durability of porcelain also makes these crowns longer lasting than most other crown materials. With proper care, your porcelain crown should provide you with years of greater function and more beautiful smiles.

Determining whether porcelain crowns are right for you.

If you’re concerned about the look of your natural teeth, ask your American Dental Center dentist for an evaluation to see if porcelain crowns could restore the beauty of your smile. Porcelain crowns can be a bit more expensive than other restoration methods, but their durability and natural appearance make the additional cost well worth it for most patients. These crowns do, however, affect your natural tooth structure. So you should carefully weigh the pros and cons with your dentist before reaching a decision.
