People suffering from advanced tooth decay or oral trauma often require dental crowns to restore their smile. Your Rochester dentist, Dr. Gilly Calcagno, provides patients who require crowns a natural looking and durable option. In today’s blog, Dr. Calcagno discusses the benefits of our innovative porcelain crowns.
A crown acts a cap that fits completely over the visible portion of a tooth. A crown allows Dr. Calcagno to preserve your remaining tooth structure and prevent further damage or infection. Crowns can be used to repair teeth that are fractured or broken, as well as teeth riddled with severe tooth decay. Dr. Calcagno also uses crowns to replace missing teeth in dental bridge and dental implant procedures. A crown can return your tooth to full function and appearance.
Advantages of Our Porcelain Crowns
Our tooth-colored crowns are made from special dental porcelain. The material reflects light in a similar manner as tooth enamel, so your restoration will look completely natural. Dental porcelain is also durable and can even be shaded to blend seamlessly with your smile. Dr. Calcagno also offers breakthrough CEREC crowns. Using CEREC technology, Dr. Calcagno will create and place a dental crown in just one visit, saving our patients both time and money.
Receiving Your New Restoration
The first step in restoring your smile involves a free cosmetic consultation with Dr. Calcagno. She will perform a thorough oral examination to decide if dental crowns provide the best method of smile improvement. If so, then the next step involves preparing your tooth and taking an impression. The impression will be used to craft your new crown. After checking to ensure the new crown offers a proper and comfortable fit, Dr. Calcagno will place the crown using a powerful bonding agent.
