Porcelain Crowns Lynn Haven

Reinforce Damaged Teeth

Often referred to as “caps,” porcelain crowns are an excellent treatment for teeth that are severely damaged, weakened by decay or trauma, or the source of discomfort or pain. They also improve the aesthetics of a smile, as they are custom crafted to blend seamlessly with surrounding natural teeth. Porcelain crowns encase the entire affected tooth in order to restore beauty, improve functionality and strength, and reduce or eliminate pain. To schedule a consultation to discuss porcelain crowns with Dr. Reese Harrison, contact our Lynn Haven practice. A member of our staff would be happy to schedule an appointment for you.

Porcelain Crowns—The Placement Procedure

Once you’ve decided to have porcelain crowns placed, you will schedule two visits to our practice. During the first visit, Dr. Harrison will make a mold of your teeth for the dental laboratory. Using the latest computer-aided technology, the laboratory will custom-craft your porcelain crowns according to the precise specifications provided by Dr. Harrison. Temporary crowns may be placed during your first visit to protect the affected teeth while the lab fabricates your permanent crowns.

Once your porcelain crowns have been crafted, you will return to our Lynn Haven office for their placement. The crowns will be bonded to your teeth with a special adhesive. During the entire process, Dr. Harrison uses pain-free dentistry techniques to make certain that you are comfortable and relaxed.

Benefits of Porcelain Crowns

Damaged teeth can be the source of both physical and aesthetic problems, both of which can be addressed with the placement of porcelain crowns. The porcelain is color-matched to surrounding natural teeth to make the crowns a virtually undetectable part of your smile. The crowns also add strength and restore functionality to damaged teeth. With the proper care, porcelain crowns can last for up to 15 years.

Possible Complications of Porcelain Crowns

Teeth that have been repaired with porcelain crowns may be sensitive for a few days after the placement of the crowns. Special care must be taken with porcelain crowns, as they may chip or crack. Special toothpaste may also be recommended by Dr. Harrison. If your porcelain crowns start to feel loose, the adhesive may have lost some of its bonding power. If this happens, call Dr. Harrison right away to fix the problem.

Cost of Porcelain Crowns

The cost of porcelain crowns depends on several factors, including the extent of treatment required before the placement of the crowns and the number of teeth that need to be treated. We accept all forms of payment, and we also offer an interest-free financing option through CareCredit®.
