Porcelain crowns are caps that are specifically designed to fit over the top of a dental implant or an existing tooth to protect the remaining underlying tooth structure and to restore the appearance and function of your smile.
There are multiple reasons that your dentist at Paradigm Dental may recommend a porcelain crown.
Crowns provide a really strong, reliable tooth restoration. Crowns are particularly good at protecting weakened teeth by removing the external pressures that daily life puts on the tooth structure, meaning that you get the benefits of saving your natural tooth while also enjoying the strength and appearance that the appliance affords you.
At Paradigm Dental, we offer same-day crowns with CEREC. You’ll have a beautiful, natural-looking crown in one day!
Before your permanent crown is placed, Dr. Mark Shalaby or Dr. Mike Shalaby will prepare your tooth. Whether this means performing root canal therapy or removing any damage or decayed parts of your teeth will depend on the reason you are getting a porcelain crown. Oftentimes, your dentist will need to remove some enamel from your tooth to make room for the crown to comfortably fit between any surrounding teeth. Getting crowns generally takes two visits; however, we have the capability to prepare your tooth and place your crown in one visit.
At Paradigm Dental, we handcraft your porcelain crown right here in our office. Not only do we have the ability to prepare your tooth and make your custom crown in a single day, but we are able to make a truly customized crown that matches the color of your surrounding teeth and be especially unique to you.
With proper care, your porcelain crowns can last you between 5 to 15 years or longer.
At Paradigm Dental, we have an in-house laboratory where we custom make all of your dental appliances, including your porcelain crowns. This gives your dentists control over the quality of the materials and craftsmanship that goes into making your porcelain crowns. We know that you have a choice when it comes to choosing your dental providers, and we are proud that so many patients put their trust in us to deliver the highest-quality care and dental crowns Austin, TX has to offer.
Porcelain crowns aren’t the most cost-effective restorative cosmetic dentistry procedure, but many patients find that the longevity and quality of their investment is worth it. Because dental crowns are often necessary to protect your overall oral health, many insurance plans contribute to the cost. If you are unsure what your insurance plan contributes to or cover, you can talk with a member of our billing staff.
We also partner with CareCredit and offer in-house financing options on a case-by-case basis to help you get the dental care you need at a price you can afford. If you want to know more about our financing options, call our office to talk about how you can get the care you need within your budget.
Restoring your smile with porcelain crowns is one of the best ways to restore your smile and preserve your oral health. If you want to learn more about how crowns can enhance your smile, call our team at Paradigm Dental today at (512) 992-2822 to reserve your consultation.
So, I am scared of the dentist and by scared, I mean TERRIFIED. I’d rather be locked in a room with the IT clown then get dental work done. That being said the new staff at Rigby aka Paradigm Dental made me feel as relaxed as possible. I believe my hygienists name was Shandra, but considering I heard her say it while looking for the nearest exist to run for my life I’m sure that’s not exactly her name. She was super sweet and very careful not to hit any sensitive spots on my teeth. Dr Mike? Again, I was hearing these names under mental duress so I can’t be held accountable for getting them totally wrong. Anyway he was awesome. He made me feel better about a tooth I was afraid would have to come out, he said he could save it!! Also he did not hurt me. Mental note taken...so far Dr Mike is better than the IT clown. I am proud to say I even scheduled a follow up filling and another cleaning in 6 months. I think I might actually go through with the appointments too :)
I was with my old dentist for quite some time and the practice kept getting sold and on my last visit I really felt like I was shuffled out the door. Rigby dental got me in super quick, everyone was off the chart nice. Clean office with new equipment. I have never had a Male dentist but Mark spent time with me , gave me options and I left feeling GOOD ! When does that happen ?!? I am sending my wife there and she is tough to please. I believe she will be happy.
I can honestly say I hate going to the dentist. Most Of them have no bed side manner. When I say that Mark is the best dentist I have ever been too. He’s so Courteous. He’s very patient and informative. He’s also very detailed and gives you exceptional service. Glad to have him as a dentist. Won’t be going anywhere but here.
