All-Ceramic Dental Restorations – Marietta and West Cobb, GA
Achieve a Strong, Natural-Looking Smile
In the past, restorations did the bare minimum and only addressed the function of damaged teeth. Although metal restorations are strong and durable, they do little to enhance appearance and confidence. Fortunately, here at Leading Edge Dentistry, we utilize ceramic materials for all of our restorations, meaning that every tooth can look completely natural in your smile. Could you benefit from having a ceramic crown, bridge, inlay, or onlay? Read the information below and contact our team to schedule an appointment and find out more!
What Are Ceramic Restorations?
As the name implies, ceramic restorations consist of a dental porcelain material, which is biocompatible and tooth-colored. When it comes to repairing teeth that have cracked, fractured, decayed, or otherwise been damaged, all-ceramic crowns restore these teeth to their former glory in basically every respect, especially aesthetics. When your restorations are fabricated from high-quality dental ceramic, you can be sure that they’ll appear and feel just like the real thing.
Benefits of All-Ceramic Restorations
Compared to metal crowns, porcelain restorations have many advantages, including the following:
- Porcelain crowns are crafted to look exactly like natural teeth, so your smile looks naturally beautiful.
- Ceramic restorations are biocompatible and metal free, which means they are safe and comfortable to have in your mouth.
- Ceramic restorations are insulators, so you don’t have to worry about your tooth reacting to extreme temperatures.
- These restorations are completely custom-made for your mouth.
Process for Placing All-Ceramic Restorations
After a quick exam with Dr. Howard or Dr. Myerson, we can get to work on creating your porcelain restoration. We begin by preparing the tooth. In some cases, this means that we’ll need to remove a portion of the tooth’s enamel to make space for the restoration. In others, the tooth may require removing decay or injured tissue.
Then, we take impressions of your teeth and send this information to our dental lab. If needed, we can place a temporary crown until the permanent one is ready. Once your restoration is complete, you return to our office to have it put into position in your mouth. In as little as two appointments, you could have a smile you’re proud to show off.
