What is a Porcelain Crown?

You may have seen people with crowns that look fake, too opaque, or with a clear line at the gum line. This is caused by the underlying metal substructure in a porcelain fused to metal (PFM) crown. While PFM crowns were a standard in dentistry, at Signature Dentistry of Denver, we use all porcelain crowns, which provide the same strength, but are far superior in terms of aesthetics, providing natural translucency, radiance, and no ark line at the gums.

Who are Porcelain Crowns for?

Porcelain Crowns are the optimal choice when a tooth needs to be restored due to any of the following problems:

  • Cracked Teeth
  • Broken Teeth
  • Extensive Decay 
  • Worn Teeth
  • Severely Discolored Teeth
  • When teeth have minimal natural structure remaining

Crowns can save teeth if they have been significantly damaged by holding a cracked tooth together, providing additional strength and support to teeth that have large fillings or extensive decay. Porcelain crowns restore both the structural integrity and aesthetics back to teeth.

What Are The Steps In Getting A Porcelain Crown

Getting a crown is a simple process and requires only two appointments:

Step 1

Step 2

Preparation – The doctor will remove the damage or decay that is causing the teeth problems, and rebuild the strength and integrity to the teeth using bonding and adhesives. He will then prepare the teeth to receive the new crowns, make an impression of the teeth, and create custom temporary teeth, so when you leave you have your new look and healthier teeth! Your impression is then sent to the dental laboratory for them to create your custom porcelain crowns.
