Dental Crowns Can Restore Function and Aesthetics

Fixing chipped, cracked, broken, and decaying teeth has never been easier with metal-free dental crowns. Our Palm Beach Gardens practice uses high quality IPS E.Max® products to restore the structure, function, and aesthetics of your smile. At PGA Dentistry, we want to see your joy and confidence shine through your smile and each member of our team is dedicated to helping you reach your goals.

Understanding the Procedure

Dental crowns are shells of strong porcelain designed to fit over your existing teeth or to restore a dental implant. These restorations are one of the most popular options when it comes to strengthening damaged or decaying teeth. We will tailor your crowns to optimize your bite, and the alignment and color of your teeth. Each one of your personal requests and needs will be addressed to ensure that your experience with us is positive and successful.

The Aesthetic Benefits

Restoring weak, decaying teeth with natural-looking dental crowns will make your smile look better than ever. By artistically matching the color of your crowns with that of your natural smile, our doctors can help you achieve the smile of your dreams. Having a cleaner, whiter, straighter smile will take years off your face and give you another chance to show off your gorgeous grin.

The Oral Health Benefits

Broken teeth and large silver-mercury fillings that are left untreated can cause a number of lifelong oral health problems. Cracks and breaks in the surface of your teeth can capture harmful plaque and bacteria, which cause decay and tooth loss. As soon as you restore your teeth with dental crowns, you will see a dramatic improvement in the structure and function of your teeth.

Aspects of a Good Candidate for Dental Crowns

  • Poorly shaped or disproportionately small teeth
  • Cracked or chipped teeth
  • Teeth that lack support or strength
  • Decayed or damaged teeth
  • Chewing food is difficult or your bite is not aligned properly
  • Extensively worn teeth that can no longer support a filling or other restorative treatment
  • Restoring tooth structure after a root canal
  • Completing a dental implant restoration

Aspects of a Bad Candidate for Dental Crowns

While porcelain dental crowns provide realistic restoration for teeth that are comfortable and stable, they are many situations where they may prove a bad treatment option. For instance, if you are suffering from more serious underlying dental conditions, such as gum disease or tooth decay, these conditions will need to be addressed before moving forward with a dental crown. This is because both conditions can still spread to other areas of your mouth, compromising even more of your teeth. While crowns are effective at repairing damage caused by these problems, they will not actually rid you of these conditions.

There are reasons other than your oral health that may also discourage you from pursuing treatment with dental crowns. For instance, some patients are uncomfortable with how much tooth structure needs to be removed to support the crown. For these patients, we may recommend another option, such as porcelain veneers, instead of moving forward with crowns. Some patients may have teeth that are simply too damaged to support a porcelain dental crown. For these patients, the tooth may need to be removed, in which case another treatment such as a dental bridge or dental implant may be a better option for their treatment.

Common Questions About Dental Crowns

The length of your porcelain crown’s longevity is largely based on the quality of the material and how well you care for them over the years. At PGA Dentistry our porcelain crowns are constructed at our high-quality ceramics laboratory and are guaranteed to fit comfortably and look great. On average, porcelain dental crowns can last anywhere from 15 to 20 years with proper care and maintenance. Unlike dentures or dental bridges, dental crowns are remarkably durable. It’s important that you continue with your routine dental visits in order to maintain the longevity and health your crowns.

There are a variety of dental crowns available in the dental field, from gold to stainless steel to resin and porcelain to metal crowns, but at PGA Dentistry we’ve found that metal-free E.Max porcelain crowns are the most natural-looking and just as durable as most other forms. Older materials in other types of crowns can yellow or break down over time, look artificial and are sometimes easy to tell apart from your natural teeth. With our metal-free E.Max porcelain crowns, custom fabricated in our specialty ceramic laboratory, we can transform our patients’ smiles into brighter, whiter variations that will stay strong and look beautiful for decades.

Since porcelain crowns can last anywhere from 15 to 20 years or longer, it’s truly a long-term investment to save your teeth and your smile. The final cost of the procedure will be determined during your consultations with our team and depends on a number of factors: how many crowns you’re receiving and if any supplemental procedures are needed first. We believe that these crowns will dramatically improve your smile and are guaranteed to last a long time thanks to our high-quality workmanship and materials. We offer a number of payment options and accept financial assistance programs to alleviate any burden of cost for our patient. We encourage you to contact us for more information about the cost and financing of your porcelain crowns.

Highest Quality Porcelain Dental Crowns from PGA Dentistry

Porcelain dental crowns are a great treatment for cosmetic issues as they provide realistic looking replacement teeth that are comfortable and stable. If you lack the support needed to keep a crown healthy, a dental implant can also be used, which will replace the entirety of your missing tooth. Once the implant is successfully placed and healed, it will be fully capable of supporting a porcelain crown for the rest of your life. And, it will require no additional maintenance; you will simply have to brush and floss your teeth like you normally would. With all the options available to our patients using porcelain dental crowns, there is no longer any reason to tolerate a smile you don’t love. If you would like to find out more about porcelain crowns and what makes a good candidate for treatment with them, we encourage you to contact us and schedule a no-obligation consultation with Dr. Ajmo at his Palm Beach Gardens, FL office today.
