Porcelain Crowns

Natural Feeling & Function

Do you have a cracked or chipped tooth? Are you looking for a solution that can restore and enhance your tooth? Welcome to Nuvo Dental Arts, where cutting-edge dental care meets the highest standard of patient comfort. Led by the esteemed Dr. Adrian Gonzalez, we are committed to providing top-tier dental services. One of our specialties for our patients in the Miami area is porcelain crowns, a perfect blend of durability and aesthetics for restoring your smile.

What are Porcelain Crowns?

Porcelain crowns are custom-made caps that fit over your natural teeth, providing strength and a natural appearance. They are crafted from high-quality ceramic material to mimic the translucency and color of natural teeth. Porcelain crowns are popular for patients looking for a durable and aesthetically pleasing dental solution.

What Can Porcelain Crowns Correct?

Porcelain crowns are versatile and can address various dental issues, including:

  • Cracked or Chipped Teeth: Protects and prevents further damage.
  • Discolored Teeth: Offers a whiter, more uniform appearance.
  • Worn-down Teeth: Restores height and function.
  • Root Canal-treated Teeth: Reinforces the structure post-treatment.


What to Expect When Getting Porcelain Crowns

The process of getting porcelain crowns involves two primary visits to our office:

Initial Consultation and Tooth Preparation

During your initial appointment with Dr. Adrian Gonzalez, your teeth will undergo a comprehensive examination, including X-rays, to assess the affected area. If a crown is deemed necessary, we will carefully reshape the affected tooth to accommodate it. We will take an impression of the tooth and its surrounding structure to ensure a precise fit for the crown.

In the interim, a temporary crown will be placed to safeguard the tooth until the permanent crown is fabricated and ready for placement. This meticulous process ensures both the functionality and aesthetics of your restored tooth.

Fitting the Permanent Crown

Once your custom porcelain crown is prepared, you’ll schedule a follow-up appointment with Dr. Gonzalez for the fitting. During this visit, we will remove the temporary crown and assess the fit and color of your new porcelain crown. Dr. Gonzalez will make any necessary adjustments to ensure a perfect fit and seamless integration with your natural teeth.

Once both you and Dr. Gonzalez are satisfied with the fit and appearance, the crown will be permanently cemented in place, completing the restoration process. This final step ensures that your tooth is functional and aesthetically pleasing, providing long-lasting durability and enhancing overall dental health.


Aftercare Steps

Taking care of your porcelain crown is essential to ensure its longevity:

  • Maintain Good Oral Hygiene: Brush and floss regularly to avoid plaque buildup.
  • Avoid Hard Foods: Avoid cracking or damaging the crown by removing hard or sticky foods.
  • Regular Dental Check-ups: Schedule regular visits to Nuvo Dental Arts for cleanings and inspections.
  • Use a Mouthguard: If you grind your teeth at night, a mouthguard can protect your crown.


Benefits of Porcelain Crowns

  1. Natural Appearance: Porcelain crowns are highly aesthetic and closely resemble natural teeth, providing a seamless and natural-looking restoration that blends seamlessly with the rest of your smile.
  2. Durability: Porcelain crowns are durable and strong, offering long-lasting protection for weakened or damaged teeth. They can withstand the daily wear and tear of chewing and speaking with proper care for many years.
  3. Biocompatibility: Porcelain is biocompatible, meaning it is well-tolerated by the body and unlikely to cause allergic reactions or sensitivity issues. This makes porcelain crowns a safe and suitable option for most patients.
  4. Customization: At Nuvo Dental Arts, porcelain crowns are custom-made to match the size, shape, and color of your natural teeth, ensuring a personalized and precise fit. This customization ensures optimal comfort, function, and aesthetics.
  5. Conservation of Tooth Structure: Compared to other restoration options, such as dental bridges or implants, porcelain crowns require minimal removal of healthy tooth structure. This conservative approach helps preserve as much of the natural tooth as possible while effectively treating damaged or decayed teeth.
