What Is a Ceramic Crown?

If you are in search of a time-tested solution to restore damaged teeth and improve the appearance of your smile, you’ve come to the right place. Dental Care of North Carolina is proud to offer quality, durable restorations, including ceramic crowns. You’ll love the incredibly natural-looking and feeling results!

What Are Ceramic Crowns and What Are Their Uses?

A dental crown, or cap, is a restoration that fully encases the visible portions of a damaged tooth, restoring its health, function, and appearance. At Dental Care of North Carolina, we are proud to offer all-ceramic dental crowns that look almost exactly like your natural teeth!

We may recommend a dental crown for the following purposes:

  • To support a tooth when a filling is too large
  • To protect a cracked or broken tooth
  • To restore a weak or damaged tooth
  • To strengthen and preserve a tooth after a root canal treatment
  • To repair a tooth worn due to teeth grinding (bruxism)
  • To alleviate pain resulting from cracked tooth syndrome
  • To cover a dental implant
  • To attach a dental bridge
  • To enhance the shape, color, or appearance of a tooth

Why Choose Ceramic Crowns?

Ceramic, or porcelain crowns, are cutting-edge restorations made from a thin, translucent material that mimics the light reflecting properties of your natural tooth enamel. Your restoration is carefully color and texture-matched to your surrounding teeth, blending in seamlessly with your smile. All-ceramic crowns are incredibly strong and resistant to staining, giving you the confidence that they will enhance your smile for years to come.

What Is the Dental Crown Procedure?

We will first numb the area for your comfort, then reshape your tooth and taper it down so that your new ceramic crown will fit snugly over it. Next, we will make an impression of the area and send the mold to a dental lab for fabrication. We will cover and protect your prepared tooth with a temporary crown while you wait.

When your ceramic crown is ready, you will return to our office for your placement appointment. We will secure your new restoration over your natural tooth, leaving you with stunning results!
