Porcelain Crowns and Bridges
Porcelain crowns protect and cover cracked or damaged teeth while restoring your smile to its original strength and beauty. At Cherrybank Dental Spa, we place our all- porcelain crowns with care, located conveniently near both Dundee and Glasgow in Scotland.
Overview of Porcelain Crowns
A fractured or cracked tooth, untreated decay, or an old, large filling may leave teeth susceptible to further damage and cavities that can cause painful toothaches. To protect the remaining tooth structure as well as the pulp of the tooth, the dental professionals at Cherrybank Dental Spa will cover such teeth at our practices. They will guard your teeth against further damage while also restoring their beauty. In fact, all-porcelain ceramic crowns are one of the most aesthetically pleasing options for repairing damaged teeth.
Placing porcelain crowns will take two visits. During the first visit, Dr. Elaine Halley, or one of our other experienced cosmetic dentists, will remove the decayed tooth material and reshape the tooth to accept the crown. Afterwards, they will take an impression of your tooth and place a temporary crown over it. The temporary crown, made of composite resin, will ensure that the damaged tooth doesn’t move and that there is no further wear to the tooth structure while the permanent crown is being prepared.
After they are ready to be placed, you will again visit our practice. We will remove the temporary crowns and replace them with the permanent ones. Before cementing them in place, the Dr will check to make sure the shapes and colours are consistent with your surrounding teeth. After undergoing this treatment, not only will your bite be stronger and healthier, but also the appearance of your smile will be improved.

Porcelain crowns are not the only options for aesthetically restoring broken, cracked, or misaligned teeth. We also offer dental implants, white fillings, bridges, and porcelain veneers as options for repairing damaged teeth
