Repair Damaged Teeth with Dental Crowns in Rockledge
You may need a dental crown for a number of reasons. Crowns can restore teeth that have been severely damaged, provide extra support for teeth that have been weakened by treatment such as root canal therapy, and provide a cosmetic makeover for teeth that are stained or chipped. Porcelain dental crowns offer a metal-free fix to your damaged smile, giving you a more beautiful appearance while returning your smile to full function and health. If you come to Premier Walk-In Dental in Rockledge, Florida for emergency dental care after breaking a tooth, we can provide porcelain crowns to rebuild the tooth.
What is a Dental Crown?
A crown completely covers your natural tooth. While crowns can be made from a variety of metal materials, including gold and silver, many people today prefer porcelain crowns because of their beauty as well as their strength. We will assess the tooth to be crowned and have a porcelain crown crafted for you based on your specific needs. The entire procedure will generally require at least two visits to our office, but luckily you can visit us on your time to have your porcelain dental crowns fitted, designed, created, and bonded to your teeth.
Why Might You Need a Dental Crown?
We might indicate the need for dental crowns to:
- Provide protection for a weakened tooth and prevent a cracked tooth from breaking
- Cover a tooth with a cavity that’s too big for a filling
- Restoring broken teeth and repairing heavily worn teeth
- Anchoring a fixed bridge
- Provide cosmetic treatment for discolored or misshapen teeth
Children can need dental crowns as well. Your child might need a dental crown because of extensive decay or preventive care for a high-risk tooth.
What to Expect During a Dental Crown Procedure?
You’ll come in for an initial appointment at our Rockledge walk-in dental office, where we’ll modify and make an impression of your tooth to be used in making your dental crown. We’ll place a temporary crown to be worn while your permanent crown is being made for you at the dental lab. Once your porcelain crown is ready, you’ll return to our office and have the crown placed – and the entire process can be done without committing to any appointments! If you’re a busy person for whom commitment is stress-inducing, Premier Walk-In Dental in Rockledge is the perfect solution. We offer walk-in dental crowns for those who need extra convenience.
A flawless smile can say a lot about you. In fact, polls frequently indicate that people with attractive smiles are perceived as more intelligent, healthier, and wealthier by their peers. Conversely, an employment study indicated that patients with unattractive or missing teeth were less likely to be hired or promoted. If you don’t like the way your smile looks, the Premier Walk-In Dental team can help. We offer a wide range of cosmetic dentistry services that can transform flawed teeth into picture-perfect smiles. One of the most popular cosmetic services we offer is the simple but impactful porcelain veneer. If you want to learn more about any of our dental services, contact our Rockledge dental team to schedule your cosmetic dentistry consultation with Dr. Sowmya Kumar. She has years of experience providing a wide array of cosmetic dental services to meet any patient’s needs and create gorgeous smiles.
What are Porcelain Veneers?
Veneers are thin sheaths of dental grade porcelain. About the size of a fingernail, porcelain veneers are affixed to the front surfaces of teeth to correct and conceal numerous cosmetic flaws with just one, simple procedure.
Who Should Consider Cosmetic Treatment with Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are extremely versatile, and we can use them to correct almost any smile flaw. From mild dental discoloration to advanced dental wear, porcelain veneers make it easy to perfect even the most flawed smiles. We can even use porcelain veneers as an “instant orthodontics” treatment. If your smile is functioning properly but you have unevenly spaced or irregularly positioned teeth, we can reshape your entire smile line with a custom porcelain veneer.
How are Porcelain Veneers Placed?
Porcelain veneers are placed in two appointments. During your initial visit, we’ll prepare the teeth by removing a very small amount of surface enamel. This allows the veneer to lie flat within the smile line. Once teeth are prepared, dental impressions are captured. We send these impressions to our dental lab where your custom veneer will be crafted. Then, we place a temporary veneer to protect your prepared teeth and allow you to get used to the look and feel of your altered smile. When the final product is received from the dental lab, you’ll return to exchange your temporary for a flawless, custom crafted porcelain veneer that will transform your smile.
Do I Need to Care for Porcelain Veneers Differently?
You may need to switch to a soft or ultra soft bristled toothbrush and use a less abrasive toothpaste. Otherwise, your oral health and hygiene routine should remain the same. You’ll need to brush teeth for at least two minutes at a time twice a day and floss daily. Additionally, it’s important to maintain twice a year dental visits with Dr. Kumar and the Premier Walk-In Dental team. We’ll partner with you to extend the life of your porcelain veneer, so your smile will stay flawless.
