Porcelain Crowns (Caps)

Understand Teeth, Their Conditions and Treatment- 09 What Is a Porcelain Crown?

Terms like dental bridge, veneers and crowns are best understood in the context of successfully treating missing or damaged teeth.

For example, perhaps you have one or more teeth missing due to injury or disease. A missing tooth can greatly impact your oral health as well as the integrity of your jaw, your bite and your ability to chew comfortably.

For this reason, it is important to take action to stabilize the remaining teeth and surrounding jaw by filling in the space left by the missing tooth.

Often, your cosmetic dentist will recommend a dental bridge to achieve these goals. But before you can get a dental bridge installed, you may first need to have any damaged teeth surrounding the gap repaired and/or stabilized to support your new bridge.

Common procedures to repair or stabilize surrounding teeth include root canals and crowns.

In this article, learn why your Sherman Oaks dentist may recommend a dental bridge, how it works, steps to install a bridge and more.

What is involved with dental implants
Most patients are surprised to learn that most dental procedures have a limited lifespan. Fillings, crowns and other fixes do not typically last forever. That is why dental implants have become so popular. As more people ask their dentist about implants, it is important to understand the process step by step in order to assess the viability for each patient.

What’s Involved Getting Porcelain Crowns

Crowns are a common restoration provided by a cosmetic dentist or a general practice dentist. Your dentist may recommend that you get a porcelain crown if one of your front teeth is cracked, badly chipped or has stains that cannot be whitened. A porcelain crown also functions as a restoration after you have had a large filling or root canal therapy. Porcelain crowns are similar to veneers because they are both customized to the shape, color and size of your natural teeth. However, veneers are strictly cosmetic. The process of getting a porcelain crown is simple and pain-free.
