Dental Crowns

At Alpine Dental Care, we are committed to helping our patients enjoy long-term oral health in a way that promotes both the optimal function of their dentition and the aesthetic appeal of their smiles. Toward this end, our experienced dentists offer a variety of beautiful, long-lasting restorative dentistry solutions, including all-porcelain crowns. Porcelain crowns are lifelike, durable, stain-resistant restorations that are meticulously crafted to blend seamlessly with the rest of your smile. These crowns are perfectly matched for color and size so that you can feel completely confident in your appearance.

Have you ever noticed a dark line around the edge of someone’s tooth, close to the gum line? Perhaps you have even noticed it yourself: an unsightly blemish on one of your own dental crowns that makes you feel self-conscious when you speak or smile. This common problem is caused by metal showing through in porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns. All-porcelain crowns offer strength and stability without this cosmetic flaw, promoting a considerably more natural look.

Benefits of All-Porcelain Crowns

Porcelain crowns are used in a variety of applications, offering structural integrity and beauty to a tooth that has been compromised by dental decay or other damage. Whether you are in need of a new crown or you currently have one that you would like to replace, we are here to help. Among the numerous uses for porcelain crowns, the most common are:

  • Extensive decay and/or root canal therapy
  • Cracked or chipped teeth
  • A tooth that is badly discolored
  • Crown and bridge treatment
  • Dental implant restorations

In order to ensure the most comfortable fit and optimal function, your porcelain crown will be custom-crafted just for you. First, an impression of your dentition will be taken and used to formulate the design for your restoration. Your crown will be milled from a single block of strong, dental porcelain that has been chosen specifically to match the shade of your other teeth. Any final adjustments will be made just prior to the placement of your crown, ensuring that the fit is just right.

Restorative Dentistry You Can Trust

Dr. Donian Shen always does everything possible to make sure that you are completely comfortable during your procedure, in addition to providing you with personalized aftercare instruction. Because porcelain crowns so closely mimic the quality of your natural teeth, there is no need to alter your regular oral healthcare routine. Simply brush and floss as you normally would, and visit our office at least twice per year for checkups and cleanings. You’ll enjoy the complete comfort and confidence that comes with having a beautiful, healthy smile with all-porcelain crowns from Alpine Dental Care.
