Rosenblatt, D.M.D., P.A., in Boynton Beach, Florida, offers porcelain crowns to complete and enhance your smile. If you’re interested in a porcelain crown, schedule a visit online or by phone today.
Porcelain crowns are restorations that can protect damaged or weakened teeth. They’re made of porcelain, a tooth-colored material that reflects light and looks just like natural teeth.
Hugh B. Rosenblatt, D.M.D., P.A., customizes dental crowns to fit the exact color, shade, and translucency of your teeth, giving you a complete smile that not only appears attractive but restores full function of your teeth.
You may consider porcelain crowns over traditional materials like metal to help you achieve a more natural-looking smile.
Hugh B. Rosenblatt, D.M.D., P.A. may recommend a dental crown to help:
Dental crowns may be a part of your smile makeover, too. They can help make your teeth more uniform and beautiful.
Porcelain crowns require a few visits to the office. During your first visit, Dr. Rosenblatt prepares your teeth to receive the porcelain crown. He shaves down some of your enamel to make room for the restoration.
Then, he proceeds to take impressions of your teeth using the iTero™ intraoral scanner and sends the images to a dental lab, where they will create your custom crowns. While you wait for the lab for your permanent crowns, he places a temporary crown to protect your teeth in the meantime.
Once your porcelain crowns return, Dr. Rosenblatt cements your crown securely in place. He then evaluates your bite for a natural fit and makes revisions so you can have a beautifully functional smile.
Just like taking care of your natural teeth, you should brush your porcelain crowns and floss daily. It’s also important to schedule regular, professional cleanings twice a year to ensure your oral health is in optimal condition.
To protect your new crowns, you should avoid chewing on hard objects like ice and using your teeth to open packages.
