What are Porcelain Crowns?

A porcelain crown is a covering that encases the entire tooth surface restoring it to its original shape and size. A crown protects and strengthens a tooth structure that cannot be restored with fillings or other types of restorations. Although there are several types of crowns, porcelain (tooth colored crown) are the most popular because they resemble your natural teeth. They are highly durable and will last many years, but like most dental restorations, they may eventually need to be replaced. Porcelain crowns are made to match the shape, size, and color of your teeth giving you a natural, long lasting beautiful smile. We are proud to serve our community and look forward to helping you achieve your perfect smile with porcelain crowns in Denham Springs!

How We Do It.

Due to modern technology, the crown process can be completed in one appointment. Unlike before, there were multiple appointments, temporary crowns and a mouth full of impressions. We are now able to offer our patients same day crowns via Cerec restorations. Crown appointments are condensed from crown preparation to cementation all in one visit to our Denham Springs office.

Some cases require a different approach due to complexity. Multiple teeth cosmetic enhancement can take multiple appointments. The first appointment consists of pictures and impressions to send to our lab. These crowns are sent to our best labs to ensure the proper shape and cosmetic look our patients strive for. After crown preparation, temporary crowns and full mouth impressions, the crowns are sent back to our office. Our doctors review the case prior to the final visit which consists of removing all temporary crowns and cementing final crowns. Although this is not a one day treatment, we have had many successful outcomes as evidence by our multiple positive reviews.
