Skilled care and quality materials provide stunning results
Dr. Christopher Lim of Hillside Dental in the Las Vegas area assists patients with a wide range of restorative treatments. He offers everything from dentures to porcelain crowns. Porcelain crowns are extremely common in dental practices because of the variety of issues they can address.
Porcelain crowns are versatile. They may be fabricated to cover a tooth that has recently undergone a root canal and needs an extra layer of protection. A porcelain crown may be created by a dental laboratory to cover the abutment of a dental implant and act as a false tooth. Other crowns are bonded to pontics (false teeth) to create dental bridges. Crowns can be a great dental solution for many issues, which is why they are commonly used at Hillside Dental.
Many patients who are told they could benefit from the placement of porcelain crowns often ask Dr. Christopher Lim about their advantages. Porcelain crowns have several benefits, which include:
- Timely repairs
Porcelain crowns are fabricated after preparation of the natural teeth. The dentist will take impression (mold) of the tooth that is then sent to a dental laboratory that fabricates the restoration based on the color, size, and specifics requested by the dentist. The patient will come back to the office for the final placement, enjoying the new crown in a few weeks. Patients find that crowns are a great investment in their smiles.
When Dr. Christopher Lim recommends a porcelain crown for a patient’s smile, he will do so after providing a thorough evaluation.
