Ceramic Crowns

Available in Morrisville and Greensboro

Are you tired of trying to cover your smile or smiling closed-mouthed? Have you wondered if you could ever improve your smile and stop hiding behind your hand? Your smile radiates happiness and confidence. At the same time, your smile can also affect how you look and feel about yourself.

Ceramic crowns are a great solution for people who have:

  • Minimal space within the mouth
  • Want a more natural looking appearance

Why use ceramic crowns?

Since ceramic crowns are made out of thinner material, compared to other types of crowns, ceramic crowns are much lighter. Also, their biggest cosmetic advantages are that they look just like your other teeth. They will look just as lustrous and beautiful as your natural teeth.

So, if you grind your teeth, need to repair a broken or damaged tooth, or had a root canal, a ceramic crown is a solution for you.

Other reasons for using ceramic crowns include:

  • To attach a bridge
  • To support a tooth when a filling is too large
  • To protect cracked or broken tooth
  • To cover a tooth that has undergone a root canal
  • To provide cosmetic enhancement

What is the procedure for installing a ceramic crown?

Your tooth will be reshaped and tapered down so that the ceramic crown will fit snugly over the tooth. An impression will be taken, and the mold will be sent to a dental lab.

In the meantime, you’ll be fitted with a temporary crown until your permanent one is ready. Once your ceramic crown is ready, it will be placed over the natural tooth. Since crowns are very sturdy, they will last a long time. Once installed, they will look and feel exactly like your other teeth.
