Enhance Your Smile with Porcelain Crowns in Braintree, MA

At South Shore Dental Group, we understand that your smile is one of your most important features. Porcelain crowns are a superb option not only for restoring damaged teeth but also for enhancing your dental aesthetics. Our team in Braintree, MA, combines advanced dental technology with artistic precision to create crowns that are not only functional but also beautifully natural.

What Are Porcelain Crowns?

Porcelain crowns are custom-fitted caps placed over a tooth to restore its shape, size, strength, and appearance. These crowns are crafted from high-quality ceramic materials that mimic the translucency and color of your natural teeth. Ideal for teeth that have been weakened by decay, cracks, or excessive wear, they offer a durable and cosmetic solution.

Benefits of Porcelain Crowns

  • Aesthetic Appeal: Porcelain crowns are highly aesthetic due to their glass-like appearance which closely resembles natural tooth enamel.
  • Durability: Despite their delicate appearance, porcelain crowns are robust and can last up to 15 years with proper care.
  • Biocompatibility: Porcelain is a good choice for patients with metal allergies as it is non-toxic and not harmful to the gum tissues.

The Porcelain Crown Procedure at South Shore Dental Group

  1. Consultation and Planning: Every successful porcelain crown starts with a detailed consultation where your dental goals and treatment options are discussed.
  2. Tooth Preparation: The affected tooth is gently filed down to make room for the crown, and an impression is taken for a precise fit.
  3. Crown Design: Utilizing the latest in digital dentistry, we design your crown to match your natural teeth for seamless integration.
  4. Crown Creation: The crown is crafted in a lab using high-grade porcelain to ensure durability and aesthetic appeal.
  5. Fitting and Adjustment: Once ready, the crown is carefully placed, adjusted, and bonded to your tooth, ensuring comfort and a perfect bite.
  6. Follow-Up Care: We schedule follow-up visits to monitor your new crown and make any necessary adjustments.
