What are Porcelain Crowns?

Dental crowns can help with stained, cracked, or broken teeth, and provide extra protection for a weak tooth. The advantage of a porcelain crown is that it matches the shape and color of your natural teeth. Like traditional crowns, porcelain ones can be used as standalone appliances or as part of a bridge or dental implant.

Porcelain Crowns Benefits and Treatment Options

Many patients want their crown to match perfectly with their natural teeth. Porcelain crowns are designed with contours and colors that match your natural teeth so people will not be able to tell that you have a crown.

Why are Porcelain Crowns Necessary?

Patients prefer porcelain crowns because the material offers cosmetic benefits as well as dental health benefits.

What is the Procedure for Porcelain Crowns?

The procedure for a porcelain crown is the same as a traditional crown. The tooth is reshaped to allow the porcelain crown to fit over the tooth properly. The crown is then applied to the tooth with a permanent adhesive.

Preparing for Porcelain Crowns

You may want to consider your budget before choosing a porcelain crown. Most dental insurances will not cover the cost because porcelain crowns are considered elective.

Recovery from Porcelain Crowns

You can best take care of your new porcelain crown by brushing and flossing, having regular dental examinations, and checking the porcelain crown for any signs of being dislodged or ill-fitting on the tooth. Bacteria and food particles can be trapped between the gums and crown if the porcelain crown comes loose or is not fitted to the tooth properly. Poor oral hygiene can cause the gums to receded and open an area where plaque may develop.

How Much Do Porcelain Crowns Cost in Jupiter?

Dental insurance plans generally do not cover porcelain crowns because they are cosmetic in nature. After your consultation, we will review your coverage and help you understand your out-of-pocket expenses. You can pay your portion by cash, personal check, or credit card. We also accept CareCredit®, a convenient medical/dental financing  option that offers affordable monthly payments.

Are Porcelain Crowns Right for Me?

Porcelain crowns are preferred by patients who are able to pay more out of pocket for a crown that blends perfectly with their natural teeth.
