Dr. Steven Johnson's Dental Office - Your Destination for Beautiful Dental Crowns

What are dental crowns?

Dental crowns are protective covers for your natural teeth that enhance your smile while providing strength and function.

Why might I need a dental crown?

There are several reasons why you may need a dental crown, such as decayed teeth, root canal-treated teeth, worn-off teeth, or mal-aligned teeth.

How many visits does it take to get a dental crown?

Typically, it takes two visits. The first visit involves taking impressions for a temporary crown, while the second visit includes numbing and carefully shaping your tooth before placing the final crown.

What materials are used for dental crowns?

At our office, we primarily use porcelain or zirconia tooth-colored crowns for their superior aesthetics and durability.

How do I care for my porcelain crown? 

Caring for porcelain crowns is simple. Brush after meals, floss daily, and use a soft-bristled toothbrush to prevent scratching. Regular dental checkups help ensure your crowns are in good condition.

Can I eat normally with dental crowns?

Yes! Dental crowns restore the strength and function of your teeth, allowing you to enjoy a full and healthy diet. However, it's important to avoid biting non-food items and extremely hard foods.

How long do porcelain crowns last?

Porcelain crowns can last between 5 and 20 years, depending on your oral hygiene habits and lifestyle. Maintaining regular dental visits and practicing good oral care can help extend their lifespan.

How do porcelain crowns compare to other types?

Porcelain crowns offer natural tooth color, durability, and a secure bond with enamel. Unlike porcelain fused to metal crowns, they eliminate the risk of discoloration or visible metal lines.

What are Inlays and Onlays?

Onlays and inlays are dental restorations used to repair damaged or decayed teeth while preserving as much natural tooth structure as possible. They are custom-made from strong porcelain to fit precisely on the tooth surface, providing strength and protection. Unlike crowns, which cover the entire tooth, onlays and inlays only cover a portion of the tooth. This conservative approach makes them a suitable option when the damage is not extensive enough to require a full crown. Onlays and inlays offer a balance between functionality, aesthetics, and tooth preservation, making them an ideal choice for many dental patients

Revitalize Your Smile with Dental Veneers

What exactly are dental veneers?

Dental veneers are ultra-thin, durable porcelain shells designed to cover the outer surface of your teeth. They work wonders in transforming the appearance of your smile by improving its shape, color, and overall dimensions.

Do veneers require extensive tooth drilling?

Unlike many dental procedures, tooth preparation for veneers is minimal, often involving the removal of only 0.3mm of enamel. This conservative approach ensures a comfortable experience while delivering a remarkable smile makeover.

How do veneers differ from dental crowns?

While dental crowns provide full coverage for teeth, veneers focus on enhancing the visible surfaces. With advancements in dental technology, crowns and veneers can be seamlessly combined, creating a harmonious blend that's virtually indistinguishable from natural teeth.

Why should you consider dental veneers?

Dental veneers offer a powerful solution for smile enhancement. Whether you're looking to correct chipped teeth, discoloration, or improve the overall appearance of your smile, veneers can deliver outstanding results that will leave you feeling confident and proud.

Are dental veneers a long-lasting solution?

With proper care and maintenance, dental veneers can last for many years, providing a durable and aesthetically pleasing solution for your smile. Routine dental check-ups and diligent oral hygiene practices are essential to ensure their longevity.
