Porcelain Crowns in Rochester NY
If you have cracked, misshapen, or seemingly misaligned teeth, crowns can cover up their imperfections. Come to the dental office of Dr. Skeels and restore your teeth's strength with our porcelain crowns in Rochester, NY.
When Crowns Are Right for You
Crowns fill many functions. They cover up stained or discolored teeth. They bolster a weakened or cracked tooth. They can even hold a bridge in the right place or cover your dental implants. Additionally, we often place crowns that protect an already decayed tooth from further damage.
Our dental team can also mount porcelain on your old metal crowns or place new porcelain crowns at our Rochester, NY office.
How We place Crowns in Your Mouth
We recommend that you come in for a consultation so we can examine your teeth. It is customary to take X-rays and ensure you don't have any root damage. If we do find problems, we will help you resolve them before proceeding. After we've cleared you to get a crown, we'll make a mold of your teeth and place a temporary crown while specialists craft the permanent one.
To ensure these tooth-shaped porcelain caps match the general shape and size of your teeth, we send our molds to a lab. A third party
dental lab manufactures your porcelain crowns from the mold and sends the finished product back to our office.
At your second appointment, Dr. David K. Skeelswill mount the customized, porcelain crowns to your teeth using a luting cement.
How You Can Start the Process
The dental office of Dr. Skeels offers a free consultation and initial exam for new patients. If your teeth have cracks and other imperfections, we encourage you to schedule your consultation as soon as possible.
