Everything you should know about Porcelain Crown

A pretty smile is the key to making a good impression. Fractured, damaged or decayed teeth bring a sense of insecurity when smiling. Don’t let dental imperfections prevent you from showing off your pearly whites!

Porcelain Crown Bridges

Dentists around the world offer solutions to keep your teeth healthy and in good shape.

Suggestions range from cosmetic procedures, to necessary procedures to prevent or address serious medical conditions.

Such procedures include root canal, oral surgery, dentures, extractions, and more. Dental crown application is a common fixture for teeth after treatment.

The basic principle behind porcelain crowns is simple; it restores the size, shape and regular functions of a tooth. These porcelain crowns are caps that fit tightly on your tooth to protect it from damage. It also serves as an independent tooth when covering a decayed one.

When compared with other procedures that include dental fillings or veneers, porcelain crowns are the stronger more efficient option because they are longer lasting.

As one of the most popular methods of cosmetic procedures for smile enhancement in the dental industry, crowns aid the process of medically treating decaying teeth.

If you are looking to get a dental crown near or around the Houston area, then look no further. At URBN Dental, our highly trained and experienced staff manage the process for your dental procedure to insurance documents from start to finish in one place.

At URBN Dental we not only believe in providing the best and most efficient of dental treatments, but also a wholesome experience as highlighted by our patient testimonials.

Although dental crowns tend to be a very affordable method, porcelain crowns are more expensive than metal crowns, due to their relatively longer lifespan.

Any dentist that you approach for smile improvement procedures will suggest three basic methods. These include veneers, bonding, and dental crowns. Of these three, dental crowns prove to be the most versatile as they enhance the appearance of one’s teeth and their functionality.

Top listed reasons for why you may need a porcelain crown include basic procedures for cavities, tooth decay, and tooth damage. Your dentist may treat your tooth for the decay or cavity and conclude the procedure with a porcelain crown to ensure tooth aesthetic and functionality. Contrastingly, dental fillings only fill minor cracks while dental crowns address larger problem areas.

There are several types of dental crowns aside from those made from porcelain, and your dentist is best qualified to recommend the most suitable option for you.

At URBN Dental, we have an in-house catalog to determine the best shade for your teeth to create a custom crown that perfectly matches your smile.

Although the best way to go about it is to visit a dentist for his or her opinion, there are a few pointers that indicate imminent porcelain crowns.

Crowns tend to follow tooth decay procedures often caused by food and bacteria stuck in between your teeth, poor brushing and poor flossing habits. If you don’t avoid foods with high sugar content, don’t get enough fluoride, and smoke and drink regularly, you may need a porcelain crown fixture sooner rather than later.

The Basic Method Of Porcelain Crowns

Dental preparation of the affected tooth must take place before dental crown application. The dentist may require x-rays to assess your root and jawbone conditions clearly.

The dentist then takes your impression by first measuring and establishing the right size for your tooth’s crown. He or she matches your teeth’s shade to the dental center’s catalog.

Once you make your first visit to the dentist after the measurements, the dentist places a temporary crown in place of the permanent crown. You should avoid sticky candies and chewing gum with this crown. A third party lab is then responsible for creating the crown for the dental center, which usually takes two to three weeks to complete.

In the final stage, your dentist fits your permanent crown with the help of a little anesthesia. This follows the prerequisites of tooth cleaning and fitting margins. Your dentist may also ask you to bite to make the last small adjustments to your crown before permanently cementing it.

At URBN Dental, all of our staff from the dentist right down to the assistants are here to help you and provide a painless, comfortable and satisfying porcelain crown experience. Moreover, URBN Dental is specifically designed to provide a soothing and relaxing experience for all the patients.

You will only need minor maintenance through cleaning and flossing your teeth regularly post dental crown procedure.

A Few Symptoms

The following symptoms indicate whether or not you’re due for a visit to the dentist right now.

  1. Large Fillings in Tooth
  2. Serious Tooth Decay

Very friendly staff who put up with my inane sense of humor. The entire team team spoke with me 1:1, including: Dental assistants, hygienist, dentist, and insurance admin (explained everything to me in detail including how my insurance works). They explained my x-rays to me, the effects of flossing correctly / incorrectly. I feel like they gave me the education I didn't get as a child on how to care for my mouth, and why it's important. I was doing good stuff for my oral health-- just not correctly or with a positive attitude. GREAT aftercare package.

I am usually scared of going to the dentist for my annual cleaning but I was completely blown away by the amazing customer service from the staff. Julia was extremely helpful and explained my dental coverage and out of pocket costs. Angela did an exceptional job explaining to me about the importance of dental hygiene and actually taught me how to floss properly. The office was extremely clean and upscale. Dr. Bridget was very sweet and great bedside manners. She explained everything about the treatment plan in a very thorough and concise manner. I was extremely impressed by everyone on the office and I cant wait to come back for my next appointment.

From start to finish great experience. Impeccably clean office, high tech tools, & friendly staff. Went to get my top teeth contoured/shaped. They did a Hollywood star job! I now, have a flawless smile. I even went back the next day for a touch-up on one tooth & they took care of it, graciously. If you want quality cosmetic dentistry inside the loop; look no further. These folks are the best in class.

Great place for all your dental needs. Very inviting and friendly staff. They are very knowledgeable and passionate about the work they do. I've been looking for a good dentist for awhile while neglecting my oral health, but now I think I've found my place. 10/10 would come back for a follow-up appointment.

Very friendly staff. The hygienist's were so knowledgeable and really took the time to teach you about your teeth, they gave my husband and I "homework" to improve our oral health. Love it! Angela was great, great sense of humor (made me laugh a lot) and very professional. Awesome job Nicole, very friendly and took the time to answer all the questions we had (love she was recommending eateries for hubby to take me :). Julia was great at the front counter very lively and knowledgeable as well. They all really took the time and customized everything for us. Able to get free electric toothbrushes but didn't have any in stock.

Excellent service. Great first impression! Best cleaning I've had in several years, my mouth feels amazing. They even took the time to show me how to brush more effectively. My teeth are back to being pearly white. They were very knowledgeable in regards to my insurance and I've had no issues. The service there is impeccable!

Love the location, the dentist AND the staff. Everyone there is awesome. It's rare that I leave a dentist office feeling just as good as when I arrive. I was sad I didn't get to see Snickers, but all in all I had a great experience my first time here. Glad to finally have a new "home" dentist since moving to Texas.

Beautiful location and office. Very friendly and welcoming staff! I had a great time conversing with them about movies and music. Dr. Nguyen and his staff were very knowledgeable and stressed the importance of making sure the patient knew what their game plan was. The office is very high tech as well so it was super cool to know that I was getting the latest tech being use on me.

The staff is wonderful, very friendly and informative. I love how they not only take X-rays, but also photos of all your teeth and put them on the big screen. They spent as much time as I needed to go over each area and explain specifics of each tooth. I definitely have a greater understanding of what is going on in there and what I need to do. I also love their space, it has a calming vibe with all kinds of artwork on display. You almost feel like you’re not at the dentist! Thank you all so much, I look forward to seeing you all again! (Said no one to their dentist 😉 )
