A crown can dramatically improve a tooth’s appearance, shape and alignment. Comfort Dental Lounge provides custom cosmetic porcelain crowns for a truly natural looking solution. Crowns solve issues related to teeth that are crooked, worn down, cracked, deeply chipped, irregularly shaped, or too widely spaced. The crown is able to provide a protective shell around the damaged or decayed tooth to strengthen it, as well as to improve the appearance of the tooth. A porcelain crown will look and feel just like your other teeth. The material is designed to stay in your mouth long term and does not interact biochemically with your body as metal crowns might.
During treatment decay is removed and cleaned from the tooth. A highly accurate impression or mold is made of the prepared surface. This mold is used to create a model of the tooth which is then sent to a special laboratory that will create a porcelain crown. The crown is then cemented onto the prepared surface of the tooth.
