We can create porcelain crowns which give you a very natural looking smile. A porcelain crown may be the perfect solution when a tooth is severely decayed or fractured and there is not enough solid structure remaining to simply place a filling. Other times a tooth has had a large filling that is leaking or multiple fillings and now needs full coverage protection of a crown to maximize its stability. There are several types of porcelain crowns which we will discuss with you.
We use the latest technology when we fabricate your porcelain crown; our 3D Itero Digital Scanner precisely scans the details of your prepared tooth. It generates a computer image which is electronically communicated with our dental laboratory technicians to insure the accuracy of the fit and contour of your crown as well as its relationship to the adjacent and opposing teeth.
We have LED color corrected lights built into our dental treatment suites and we use the Vita Easy Shade Advance color shade guide to properly select the most natural color for your teeth. Our Cannon Digital Intraoral Camera captures additional information about your mouth so we can effectively communicate with our dental laboratory technicians. At times we will do a lab custom shade matching if an anterior tooth requires specialized custom shading.
If you have any questions about porcelain crowns or would like to be seen, feel free to contact us today at (916) 485-3431.
