Important COVID-19 Update

As the status of COVID-19 and corresponding recommendations change frequently, we are doing our best to keep up and adjust our policies as quickly as possible.

Your health and the health of our staff are our top priority, and that is why we are STILL OPEN, but have implemented some new procedures to limit the number of patients coming in at any given time, screen everybody coming into the office, increase sterilization above recommended standards, and comply with the most recent recommendations from the ADA and CDC.

Our office follows strict cleaning and sterilization protocols for the protection of our patients. In addition to the continued use of hospital grade sterilization equipment in our office, we clean all contact surfaces between each appointment. We use disinfectants across the office, including frequent sanitation of the front office and patient waiting area. Our employees maintain personal hygiene as well as wearing surgical masks and washing their hands and changing their gloves between each patient.

Cover a Discolored or Damaged Tooth with a Porcelain Crown

Why Porcelain Crowns?

Man smiling in office.Dental crowns, often referred to as dental caps or just crowns, are placed over worn or damaged teeth. They can also serve a cosmetic purpose, restoring a discolored tooth to its former hue.  Porcelain crowns are the best cosmetic choice when it comes to recreating the form and function of a damaged tooth. Porcelain crowns essentially replace the entire external portion of the tooth down to the gum level. Furthermore, crowns are more than just a simple replacement for the original tooth. Our dentists can design your porcelain crowns at his Bountiful, UT, and Layton, UT, practices to create an even better esthetic appearance.

Who Needs Dental Crowns?

In restorative and cosmetic dentistry porcelain crowns serves many purposes. They provide integral support to weakened or broken teeth, which, if left untreated, can lead to jaw pain, headaches and bite anomalies that can damage your other healthy teeth. Porcelain crowns are often used for the following reasons:

  • Added protection for soft or weakened teeth
  • Support extensively filled teeth
  • Anchoring bridgework
  • To restore or correct the appearance of misshapen, chipped or discolored teeth
  • Covering a dental implant
  • Capping and sealing a tooth after a root canal
  • Fixing a malocclusion, or bad bite.

Getting a Crown

The process for getting your crowns can usually be completed in two appointments. Your first appointment centers on taking several highly accurate molds that will be used to create your custom crown.

After using either local anesthetic or sedation dentistry, your doctor will prepare the tooth for the crown by removing all the decay. During this process, the dentist will shape the surface to properly fit the crown. Once these details are accomplished, we will fit your temporary crown with temporary cement, insuring your bite aligns properly.

During your second appointment, the temporary crown will be removed. The tooth is then cleaned and your new crown is carefully placed to ensure the spacing looks great and that your bite aligns.

Maintaining Your Porcelain Crown

Maintaining porcelain crowns is actually quite simple. They require routine brushing with nonabrasive fluoride toothpaste and regular flossing, just like your normal teeth.
