Porcelain Crowns, Your Best Option for Treating Damaged Teeth

Sometimes tooth damage is unavoidable. A sports collision, slip and fall at work, or even eating hard candy can result in a chipped, cracked, or broken tooth. Porcelain crowns are specifically designed to repair and restore damaged teeth so they can continue to be used. At Bingham-Lester Dentistry, we offer dental crown treatment to benefit our patients in Crofton, Maryland, and neighboring communities.

About Dental Crowns

Dental crowns, or “caps” as they are often called, are special coverings placed over weak, severely decayed, or damaged teeth to protect them from further decay or breakage. Dr. Bingham-Lester will custom-design your crown to fit perfectly over your damaged tooth. Crowns can be made from metal, ceramic, resin, or porcelain. Porcelain crowns are highly favored due to their durability and natural-looking tooth-colored appearance. 

Benefits of Porcelain Crowns

Porcelain crowns offer a practical, long-lasting solution to repairing damaged teeth and restoring their usefulness. Porcelain crowns: 

  • Are resilient enough to endure years of grinding and chewing
  • Closely resemble the color of natural teeth to enhance your smile’s appearance
  • Repair damaged teeth, restore severely decayed teeth, and strengthen weak or worn teeth
  • Form a protective seal around decayed teeth to keep future decay at bay

Porcelain crowns also serve as replacement teeth for implants and protective coverings for teeth that have undergone root canal therapy.

Can Porcelain Crowns Stain?

Although porcelain crowns are composed of durable, stain-resistant material, they do require care to retain their attractive appearance. Lack of care could result in your crown becoming stained or discolored prematurely. You can care for your crown the same way you care for your natural teeth, through daily brushing with a soft-bristle brush and non-abrasive toothpaste, flossing, and routine dental cleaning. We also recommend limiting your consumption of foods and drinks that can stain your teeth. Your crown can stay healthy and beautiful for up to 10-15 years with proper care.
