Porcelain Tooth Crowns

Florida: Jacksonville Beach, Ponte Vedra Beach

Porcelain tooth crowns are an effective option when tooth decay has damaged too much of the tooth to be repaired using fillings. Crowns are also useful for repairing teeth that have had significant damage to the tooth enamel, and require a new, sturdy surface.

Jacksonville CerecUnlike traditional amalgam, or metal crowns, porcelain tooth crowns are designed to fit seamlessly into your smile, recreating the coloring, consistency, and translucency of your natural teeth.

Fitting Porcelain Crowns

Porcelain tooth crowns are traditionally fitted over the course of two office visits, although recent advances have resulted in a more efficient system, CEREC, allows tooth crowns to be fitted in a single visit.

The first step to fitting a tooth crown is to prepare the damaged tooth by removing decayed material and shaping the tooth so that the crown may be fitted. Your dentist will then take a mold of the modified tooth, which he or she will create the porcelain crown from.

Once the porcelain tooth crown is completed, you will be asked to ensure that the color, consistency, translucency, and shape of the crown meets your approval. A strong dental adhesive is then applied to the surface of the modified tooth, and the porcelain crown is carefully fitted over the tooth and bonded to the surface.

About CEREC and Same-Day Porcelain Crowns

For decades, high tech industries have relied on Computer Aided Design (CAD) and Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM) systems to design and produce precise models of everything from containers to advanced mechanical devices.

Today, CAD/CAM technology is available to design and create custom dental tooth crowns, onlays, and porcelain veneers, quickly, rapidly, and precisely.

The CEREC--or Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics--system lets your dentist create a natural looking ceramic restoration in a single visit.
