Porcelain Crowns Oxnard

If you have a tooth with a sizable cavity, you will want to address that situation before adjacent teeth can be affected.

Dental crowns are a popular choice when it comes to covering teeth damaged by deep cavities.

There are many cases where the cavity grows beyond the stage of using inlays or onlays. At this point, you may want to consider capping your tooth with a crown.

In Oxnard we have many options other than fillings that can help you cover your tooth. When you need to have a tooth crowned, we will present the best options to help you deal with your circumstances.

We may use metallic, porcelain, resin, or ceramic dental caps to cover the tooth, depending on your preferences.

There are no special care instructions to follow after the procedure, so you can simply continue with your normal day-to-day oral routine.

At Esthetic Smiles, our professionals are always ready to welcome you and assist you in determining the best plan of action for your dental health.

What is a Porcelain Crown?

A porcelain crown is a solution for your dental care that you might not be aware of yet. It's a type of dental restoration covering, or capping, a tooth or dental implant.

Often, when a substantial cavity threatens the health of your tooth or after a root canal treatment, your dentist might recommend a porcelain crown.

why choose Porcelain?

There are many reasons to choose porcelain among the other materials available for dental crowns. Some of these include:

•  Appearance: Porcelain is white and shiny, very similar to natural teeth. It blends perfectly with the rest of your teeth. So nobody, except your dentist, will even know that you have a crown.

•  Durability: Porcelain crowns are strong, and designed to withstand the usual forces of biting and chewing just like your natural teeth.

•  Biocompatibility: Porcelain is a material that is well tolerated by the body. It does not cause any allergic reactions that can occur with some other dental materials.

Benefits of a Dental Crown

The benefits of a dental crown, specifically a porcelain crown, shouldn't be underestimated as they offer long-lasting solutions for many dental problems.

These include:
•  Restoring the tooth's function: Restoring a broken or worn tooth to its original size and shape.
•  Aesthetics: Covering discolored or misshaped teeth, offering a brighter and more uniform smile.
•  Protection: A crown acts as a shield for your weakened tooth, helping to prevent further decay, infection, or damage.

How Dental Crowns Work

Once we establish the need for a crown, you will need to schedule two appointments.

During the first appointment, our dentist will diagnose your tooth, and prepare it for crowning by shaping it. We will also provide a temporary crown for you to wear while we construct your permanent one.

This initial visit will not last longer than an hour, so you do not have to worry about spending the entire day out of work.

By your second appointment, we will have created your permanent crown, so the process will simply involve the removal of the temporary crown and replacing it with the permanent one.

The permanent crown will function and feel just the same as your original tooth.
