Porcelain crowns are common dental treatments that completely cover the natural teeth in order to restore them to an ideal size and shape. Also known as porcelain caps, porcelain crowns can provide additional aesthetics, protection, and strength to weakened or decayed teeth. Dr. Douglas Hauck may recommend a porcelain dental crown in Newport Beach, California, to:
- Complete a dental implant procedure
- Restore a tooth that is broken, fractured, or decayed
- Add protection to a tooth that has received a root canal
- Replace a large and/or fractured filling
- Add aesthetic appeal to your smile
Your porcelain crown will be closely matched in size, shape, and color to your existing teeth for the most natural, functional, and beautiful results possible.
In just two appointments at Douglas Hauck DDS, Inc., our dentist can create and place your custom porcelain crown. At the initial appointment, we will take an impression of your teeth that will be used in the creation of your custom porcelain crown. We will also create and place a temporary crown after gently removing decay and shaping the tooth. You will wear the temporary crown until your final porcelain crown is complete.
During your second visit, Dr. Douglas Hauck will remove the temporary and place the final porcelain crown. For more information on porcelain crowns or cosmetic dentistry, we invite you to call or visit our office soon.
