Tooth-Colored Porcelain Crowns At Route One Dental

What Are Porcelain Crowns?

Porcelain crowns are natural-looking covers that glide over damaged teeth.  Also called caps, they conceal imperfections like stained, fractured, or broken teeth. Porcelain crowns add durability while improving the appearance of damaged teeth. They also improve the strength of your teeth. The process of inserting porcelain crowns is proven and easy for you!

Procedure To Get Dental Crowns At Route One Dental

During your first appointment, Dr. Sonal Deshpande will take impressions or molds of your teeth so that she can create custom-made porcelain crowns for you. A mold will also be used to make a temporary dental crown that sits over the tooth while the custom-made porcelain crown is being made.

During your appointment, Dr. Deshpande will first prepare your tooth by removing any decay and shaping the surface. Then she'll place a temporary crown over it with dental cement or glue. When you come in for your next appointment, Dr. Deshpande will remove the temporary dental crown and clean the tooth. Then she will place the porcelain crown over the tooth using permanent dental cement or glue while ensuring that the bite and spacing are accurate.

Are Porcelain Crowns Covered By Insurance?

Many patients are concerned about how they will afford a porcelain dental crown. Fortunately, dental crowns are considered to be a restorative treatment, so most dental insurance policies fully cover dental crown costs. At Route One Dental, North Brunswick, Central NJ, we will find the best and most convenient way for you to pay for your dental crown treatment. Restore your dazzling smile with no worries!
