Porcelain crowns are used extensively in cosmetic dentistry to rebuild the teeth in a functional and aesthetic manner. Porcelain crowns are recommended when the tooth’s original enamel needs to be replaced, either when the tooth is fractured or more than one third of the tooth is lost due to infection or, general wear and tear. This may present as being sensitive to bite hard or cold substances, through to no sensation at all.
Porcelain crowns consist of a shell that fits over the remaining tooth, protecting the tooth’s nerve endings and structurally strengthening the tooth. As a crown recreates the visible portion of the tooth it is imperative that the colour of the crown blends with the colour of the surrounding teeth to create a harmonious appearance using the principles of smile design and cosmetic dentistry. Dr Cronin uses the latest cosmetic dentistry techniques and technology to produce an aesthetic outcome that will enhance the appearance of your smile.
Quality Dental’s porcelain crowns are in-practice using the most durable and extensive colour palette of materials that are currently available. Teeth whitening is often considered prior to shade matching for a crown to enhance the overall appearance of the teeth.
