Benefits of Porcelain Crowns

Dental crowns have been a staple of dentistry for a very long time. They are tried and true restorations that provide a variety of practical uses. Your dentist in Sarasota relies on porcelain to create lasting and natural-looking crowns for his patients. With porcelain, you don’t have to worry about dark gray edges near your gumline.

What Is a Dental Crown?

A dental crown is a cover that goes over a treated or prepared tooth to the gumline. It blends with your smile because it is tooth-shaped and colored accordingly. All you’ll see is a seamless smile.

How We Use Dental Crowns in Sarasota

Porcelain crowns offer the dual advantage of stabilizing a compromised tooth and enhancing the beauty of your smile. They also play a critical supporting role in tooth replacement.

In general dentistry, your dentist may opt to cap your tooth with a dental crown following root canal therapy. Often the root infection renders the tooth week and vulnerable to fracture. The dental crown creates a barrier between your weak tooth and your chewing to prevent breakage. It can also protect against infections or decay if you have a damaged tooth.

In cosmetic dentistry, your cosmetic dentist in Sarasota may recommend a dental crown to conceal a blemished tooth, hiding small cracks, abnormal shape, discoloration, and small gaps between teeth.

If you have missing teeth, a dental crown tops your root replacement—also called a dental implant or dental implant post.

For those who choose a dental bridge—a replacement tooth or teeth on a prosthetic—it is the supporting dental crowns that anchor the bridge across your smile gap.
