Porcelain crowns are a superior cosmetic dentistry technique used to repair damaged or diseased teeth. They serve as natural-looking replacements and are virtually indistinguishable from original teeth. The beauty of porcelain crowns is in their translucence, which allows light to pass through the material giving your new teeth a perfectly natural appearance. Today’s new and improved porcelain materials provide greater strength and durability than ever before, so you can rest assured that you will have a beautiful smile that lasts.
The porcelain crown procedure used at our cosmetic dentistry centers in Great Neck and Hicksville generally requires a minimum of two visits. During the first visit we will take impressions of the damaged teeth from which we will make a model of your mouth. This model is then used to make your porcelain crowns. At least one visit is then required to remove portions of the damaged teeth and bond the protective porcelain crowns over them.
