Restoring Your Smile with Porcelain Crowns in Chandler
One of the great benefits of innovations in dentistry are the options patients have to maintain outstanding oral health and to take advantage of newer restorative and cosmetic dentistry procedures. Dr. Mark Arooni, as your Chandler, AZ, dentist, has received extensive training in the traditional dentistry services you expect as well as new techniques that can improve or restore your teeth and smile. Among the many options you can choose, porcelain crowns in Chandler offer a unique solution to a fairly common dental problem.
The Versatility of Porcelain Crowns
Following a consultation with Dr. Mark Arooni, patients can choose dental crowns to replace flawed teeth and reproduce the appearance of natural enamel. Individuals may select this step for cosmetic reasons or to repair one or more of their teeth. If you have a damaged or missing tooth due to gum disease, tooth decay or loss, injury, or extraction, porcelain crowns are an excellent restorative option. When teeth are gapped or missing, adjacent teeth can shift. These open spaces can put you at greater risk for gum disease or tooth decay. Porcelain crowns help keep your teeth healthy and strong. Unlike porcelain veneers which are attached to and cover the front of existing teeth, porcelain crowns are denser and can help reinforce weakened teeth.
How Does the Process Work?
A dental crown is made from porcelain to blend with the look and texture of your teeth. In just two office appointments, Dr. Arooni will prepare porcelain crowns that blend with the look, texture, and size of your natural teeth and seat them in your mouth. The process for placing porcelain crowns involves determining the type of crown you need. When you talk with Dr. Arooni about your goals for your dental health, he can make recommendations just for you and detail the process. He may recommend either a ceramic or porcelain-to-fused-metal crown, depending on your needs. Once he has taken a mold of your tooth or teeth, Dr. Arooni will prepare a temporary restoration to cover your tooth until the next appointment when the final crown will be bonded into place.
Maintaining Your Porcelain Crowns in Chandler
After you have received your dental crowns, do not be surprised if you catch yourself smiling a little wider! Instead of hiding your teeth, you may want to smile at everyone you meet, especially because caring for and maintaining your porcelain crown is easy. You care for crowns the same way you care for your natural teeth. Daily brushing with a fluoride toothpaste and flossing will keep them healthy and strong. Dr. Arooni of Mark Arooni DDS will check on the crown during a follow up visit to ensure your mouth is healthy and adjusting to your new restoration. During this visit, be sure to ask questions and let the dentist know about your experience with your new crown.
