Porcelain dental crowns and bridges are the most popular dental options because it's a natural-looking material that can mimic the colour and shape of your other teeth. Porcelain also doesn't include any metal, so it's a perfect option for people who have a metal allergy.
Before receiving a porcelain crown or bridge, our dentist will first need to prepare your tooth which, depending on your situation, will involve removing any decay or removing cracks and chips, and shaping the tooth into an abutment. Next, moulds will be taken of your mouth so your custom-fitted permanent crown or bridge can be placed. This mould will be sent to a dental lab which will take approximately one to two weeks. In the meantime, you'll receive a temporary crown or bridge.
Lastly, we'll place your permanent artificial tooth. It will be held in place with the help of dental cement. After this step, you can admire your new smile in the mirror; something that we love seeing on every patient.
