For many decayed teeth, fillings will do the trick. But sometimes a badly decayed or damaged tooth can’t be repaired with a filling. Under these circumstances, Dr. Kassabian may recommend a porcelain crown. At Jester Village Dental, we’re pleased to offer our Austin, TX patients this remedy to save a damaged tooth.
Top Reasons to Choose Jester Village Dental for Porcelain Crowns:
- Porcelain crowns are extremely strong and durable
- The porcelain material used for crowns can be matched to the shade of your natural teeth, making porcelain crowns very natural-looking
- The fees charged by Jester Village Dental are reasonable and comparable to other dental practices in this area and you can have it done all in one day, saving you time and money.
What You Need to Know about Porcelain Crowns
Crowns are often a great choice to repair any of the following dental issues:
- Broken teeth
- Misshaped teeth
- Decayed teeth that can’t be repaired with fillings
- Teeth that have undergone root canals
A crown is custom-made to fit perfectly over your existing damaged tooth. Although the name of the material may indicate just the opposite, but the porcelain material used in crowns is actually quite strong and will typically last for many, many years. An added benefit is that the porcelain can often be made to closely match your natural teeth, so your crown will be barely noticeable.
The Procedure Involved with Porcelain Crowns
Getting a new porcelain crown will require only one trip to our Austin, TX office. During the visit, Dr. Kassabian will prepare the affected tooth by removing decay, while the permanent crown is being made right here in our Austin, TX office using our CEREC technology. Once the crown is ready Dr. Kassabian will affix the permanent porcelain crown. Your tooth will be repaired and as good as new!
