When your teeth become severely damaged and cannot be treated with a regular filling or root canal treatment, then our experienced dentist may suggest a porcelain crown. Porcelain crowns are custom-made caps or covers that encase a damaged tooth up to the gumline. They are especially useful for:
- Holding a broken tooth together
- Preventing a weak or fractured tooth from breaking
- Enhancing the beauty of your smile
- Anchoring a dental bridge
- Completing a dental implant
Made from a shade of porcelain that will exactly match the color of your natural teeth, porcelain dental crowns in Sevierville, Tennessee are a great way to improve the health of your smile while maintaining an attractive aesthetic. Generally, it takes two appointments to create and apply a porcelain crown. We will first reshape your tooth through a gentle buffing process in order to create a crown that will naturally fit your smile. A mold is then taken of your smile and the information is sent to a dental laboratory. When your dental crown is back at our office and has been assured for quality, we will permanently cement it into place.
We invite you to schedule your appointment with Dr. J. Steve Morton today to learn more about porcelain crowns and how they can benefit the health of your smile. We look forward to hearing from you!
