Protecting and Brightening Smiles in Tulsa, OK
Dr. Walter Davies helps his patients overcome instances of tooth decay through a variety of restorative dental services. One of the most effective, versatile ways to restore a tooth is with a crown. Progressive Dental Care of Tulsa offers porcelain crowns to patients in Tulsa, Broken Arrow, Bixby, and the surrounding communities.
The Benefits of Porcelain
There are several different materials from which your crown could be made. Our practice prefers to make crowns from porcelain to give our patients the most benefits out of their treatment.
Dental porcelain is a body-safe ceramic material which closely matches the color and shine of an original tooth. The main advantage of making a crown out of porcelain is to have your restored tooth look as natural and healthy as the rest of your smile. In addition, porcelain is also resilient enough to withstand the daily pressures of chewing for several years. A porcelain crown can last for decades as long as your smile receives proper dental care.
Locally Made for Effective Results
The quality of the crown you receive determines the effectiveness of your overall restoration. Our Tulsa dental practice has carefully chosen the method by which we get your crown to you to better ensure the quality of your prosthetic.
The crowns our practice uses, along with our other restorations, are made in the United States. Progressive Dental Care of Tulsa ships out the plans for your new crown to trusted dental lab, which fabricates your dental prosthetic. The fabrication and placement of your crown takes two weeks to complete.
When is a Crown Used?
Crowns are one of the most versatile dental restorations available, able to serve a few different purposes with equal effectiveness.
A crown is primarily used to restore a tooth whose structure has been worn away too much to survive without additional support, but not enough that the tooth cannot survive at all. Widespread decay on a tooth is the most common reason to add a crown, and this prosthetic would be added after the tooth undergoes root canal therapy. Additionally, crowns can be used as part of a dental implant in order to replace a single missing tooth.
