An all-ceramic porcelain crown provides the most beneficial and aesthetically pleasing solution for a broken or severely decayed tooth. At Gumucio Dental, we recommend porcelain crowns to restore a tooth to its previous condition while providing renewed strength and functionality.
Porcelain crowns are a significant improvement over the crowns that have traditionally been used in dental treatments. We offer 100% pure ceramic crowns because there is no better way to produce the natural translucency of enamel. Once you have your custom-made porcelain crown in place, no one will be able to tell it apart from your natural teeth.
Treatment for Broken or Decayed Teeth
Prepping your tooth is the first of two phases involved with treating a broken or decayed tooth with a crown. Defects will be repaired and your tooth reshaped in phase one. In addition, an impression of your tooth is taken and sent to our lab at Gumucio Dental. At the initial appointment, the last thing we do is use a temporary crown to cap your tooth.
Once your custom-made crown is ready, you come in for a second appointment. Your temporary crown is then removed and replaced with a permanent crown, which provides aesthetic benefits as well as improved functionality and strength.
