Will it hurt?

To make the entire process comfortable for you, the first thing your dentist will do is make the affected area thoroughly numb. Then any decay is removed with the handpiece, and the tooth is shaped.

 

Between Appointments

For the week or two that it takes the dental lab to fabricate your new crown, you'll be wearing a temporary crown. At the next visit, the temporary crown is removed and you'll try out your new crown. When everything looks perfect, the new crown is cemented into place, and the procedure is complete.

 

New, Better Material
Tooth-colored crowns used to be made of porcelain and metal. But with the new technology available today, they can be made entirely of porcelain. To have enough strength to withstand biting forces, porcelain crowns used to always be built upon a metal core. The dark metal inside the porcelain/metal crown causes a dark blue line to show at the edge of the crown. New breakthroughs in adhesives and stronger porcelain materials now make it possible to make crowns entirely out of porcelain, which then can be bonded to the teeth.

 

The Natural Smile
All-porcelain crowns maintain a translucency that makes them hard to tell from natural teeth. Without metal, the problem of the dark blue line at the edge of the gums is eliminated. This allows your dentist to place the edge of the crown above the gumline, which is healthier for your tooth and gums. When you want to improve your smile, all-porcelain crowns are a beautiful and natural-looking choice!
