Invest in the lasting health and beauty of your smile: Porcelain crowns for damaged teeth

When teeth are damaged by decay or other trauma, a simple filling may not be sufficient to rebuild tooth structure. In these cases, full-coverage crowns may be the most appropriate way to support the long-term health and function of your teeth and the beauty of your smile. Crowns made from porcelain are, by their very nature, a great value and a terrific investment for our friends in Crofton, Gambrills, and the Greater Annapolis area.

Porcelain crowns at Bingham-Lester Dentistry

Dental porcelain has a better appearance and a lifelike way to replicate natural tooth enamel. This material is also very strong. It withstands all of the forces from biting, grinding, mashing, gnashing, and chewing. So, porcelain is extremely durable and long-lasting. Additionally, as a type of dental ceramic, porcelain is biocompatible. This means the material is compatible with surrounding natural tissues. Biocompatibility makes porcelain well-suited for individuals with sensitivities or allergies to other dental materials, such as amalgams made from a mix of metal alloys. These characteristics support sustained health, comfort, and satisfaction with the appearance, feel, and function of your restored teeth.

Along with her team, Dr. Bingham-Lester’s approach and onsite technologies provide additional value and benefits to patients. Using computer-aided design and manufacturing techniques, she can plan, design, make, place, and refine a crown in just one visit – while you wait. The crown is also milled from a block of quality porcelain and by using precision techniques. These features assure that your new teeth look great, feel comfortable and natural, and hold up for years to come with good oral hygiene and routine check-ups at our office.

Other cost considerations

In general, the more extensive the procedure that is required to resolve the condition, the more the treatment costs. By treating a damaged tooth with a crown, you halt the progression of decay or disease that ultimately leads to irreparable damage. If a tooth cannot be “saved” with root canal therapy, it must be extracted and replaced with bridges, dentures, or implants. Tooth replacement is more expensive than restorative procedures such as fillings, inlays, onlays, and full-coverage crowns. With that being said, Dr. Bingham-Lester emphasizes conservative dentistry. We may find that you can benefit from an inlay or onlay (partial crown), which is a less invasive and more conservative alternative to full crowns.

Our team is also knowledgeable about insurance and experienced in working with insurance companies. In addition, we help with out-of-pocket costs as a provider of CareCredit® financing. Do not wait for symptoms to arise and conditions to progress. Contact us today for prompt and durable treatment that is a great investment in your smile, health, and well-being.
