If you have a badly infected or damaged tooth, you don’t have to smile behind the pain or feel insecure about your grin. Drs. Ty Jaros, Jacob Gubrud, and Robert Gemmell at Distinctive Dentistry in Eugene, Oregon, use porcelain crowns to restore the health and appearance of your smile. Our ceramic crowns blend seamlessly with natural teeth to deliver a beautiful, natural-looking smile. Read on to learn more about why people get porcelain crowns.
Dental crowns are tooth-shaped appliances worn over your teeth to enhance their appearance and strength. We use dental crowns to correct the damage that’s too extensive for typical fillings. A dental crown encapsulates the entire visible portion of your tooth to improve its shape and size and prevent further damage.
While dental crowns can be made from metal and other materials, we prefer tooth-colored materials like ceramic to ensure your crown looks natural.
A smile can lower stress, improve your mood, and help you look your best. But what if your teeth need a little help? Discover how dental crowns can restore your smile.
Traditional crowns require at least two dental appointments. Much of the magic happens in the first appointment, where we reshape your tooth, take your bite impressions, and place a temporary crown to protect your prepped tooth. Once an offsite dental lab completes your crown fabrication, we will place it during your second appointment. After inspecting its appearance and fit, our dentist bonds your crown into place, and now you are ready to enjoy your renewed smile.
Here are the reasons why patients and dentists prefer porcelain crowns.
