Porcelain Dental Crowns in Coral Springs, FL

Your Destination for Dental Crowns

Dental crowns are much more than a simple dental restoration. Expert dentists precisely create porcelain crowns to mimic the natural appearance of your teeth while delivering excellent strength and resilience. At South Florida Dental Center, we’re proud to be your premier destination for dental crowns in Coral Springs FL, and its surrounding areas. 

Who Needs a Dental Crown?

Porcelain dental crowns replace the exterior portion of a tooth to re–establish its original function and to create a natural appearance. Crowns are the treatment of choice in situations where tooth decay has destroyed most of the original tooth, when a traumatic event has caused damage, or in cases of severe enamel erosion. 

They are also an option for people who grind and clench their teeth so much that the original structure of their teeth has been compromised. If you can benefit from any of these, you are a dental crown candidate. They aim to:


Choosing dental crowns comes with a host of advantages that go beyond just restoring your teeth. Here’s why dental crowns can be the right choice for you:

You can regain the full functionality of your tooth. 
Dental crowns are designed to fully replace the external portion of a damaged tooth, down to the gum level. They not only strengthen damaged teeth but also bring back their full functionality. With crowns, you can confidently bite into your favorite foods without worry. 

Your tooth will get a natural, beautiful look. 
Our porcelain crowns are true masterpieces. They’re carefully designed to mimic the natural appearance of your teeth. Plus, we can customize them to match the color and shape of your existing teeth, ensuring your smile remains as beautiful as ever.

Dental crowns are built to last. 
Porcelain crowns are known for their durability. They’re tough and resilient, making them a smart investment for long-term dental health. With proper care, your crown can keep your smile looking great for many years. 

They are suitable for a variety of needs. 
Dental crowns are incredibly versatile. Whether you’re dealing with severe decay, trauma-related damage, or enamel erosion, crowns can come to the rescue. They’re not just for fixing teeth; they’re also great for enhancing your smile’s appearance.

Choosing crowns means you’re opting for a conservative approach. 
We believe in preserving as much of your natural tooth structure as possible. Dental crowns offer a conservative restoration option by protecting your teeth while maintaining their strength and integrity.

The Procedure

In every dental procedure we perform, our team prioritizes comfort and efficiency. Our dentist, Dr. Daniel Cohen, always goes the extra mile to ensure a smooth and convenient experience for everyone, including the placement of dental crowns and other restorative appliances.


Consultation with Dr. Cohen

It all starts with an examination of your dental health at our Coral Springs office with Dr. Cohen. Aside from the checkup, our dentist will sit with you and discuss your goals and expectations for getting a dental restoration. Dental crowns can be selected for necessity or cosmetic reasons, so once that is settled for your case, we’ll proceed with the treatment planning. 


Preparing the Tooth

To ensure a proper fit and the highest quality results, we’ll prepare the tooth that requires the crown. This process may involve removing a small amount of enamel and, in some cases, using filling material to create a strong foundation for the crown.


Taking Digital Impressions

Dr. Cohen will take precise impressions of your teeth using digital imaging technology. These impressions are essential for crafting a dental crown that fits seamlessly with your natural teeth.


Creating the Dental Crown

Our commitment to excellence extends to the fabrication of your dental crown. We use the latest technology and materials to create porcelain crowns that are not only durable but also indistinguishable from your natural teeth in both form and function.


Fitting and Placement

Once your dental crown is ready, we’ll ensure a perfect fit and placement. Our goal is to restore your tooth’s original function and aesthetics. We’ll make any necessary adjustments to guarantee your comfort and satisfaction.


Final Adjustments

A light-sensitive resin that hardens with a special curing light will be used to place and seal your new dental crown in your mouth. This step makes sure that your crown is in place firmly and that any last adjustments are made so that the fit is perfect.

Understanding Inlays and Onlays

Both inlays and onlays offer the advantage of strengthening the tooth’s integrity while preserving as much natural tooth structure as possible—a conservative approach to dental restoration. Here’s how they are different:

Inlays are dental restorations placed within the grooves between the cusps (points) of a tooth. They are ideal for addressing a tooth that requires reinforcement due to a large filling. Inlays are made to fit precisely within the tooth’s contours, offering a snug and secure restoration.

Onlays, on the other hand, provide a broader coverage area than inlays. They extend not only within the grooves but also over the cusp tips of a tooth. This makes them an excellent choice for teeth that need additional support due to their size or extensive damage. Similar to inlays, onlays can be custom-made to match the natural color of your tooth, ensuring a seamless and aesthetically pleasing appearance. Beyond their cosmetic benefits, onlays contribute to the durability and longevity of the tooth’s structure.

At South Florida Dental Center, we prioritize not only the functionality but also the aesthetic appeal of your smile. During the consultation, Dr. Cohen can help determine which restoration is better for you.

Crowns vs. Veneers: Which Should You Choose?

Porcelain crowns and veneers are both popular options for enhancing your smile. Many patients usually decide between these two for their restorative needs. So, which should you choose? 

The great benefit of porcelain crowns is that they can not only replicate the original tooth in function but they can also be designed to look like the original—or even better. When patients select porcelain veneers for cosmetic reasons, they’re usually covering up the front portion of the tooth that has some aesthetic flaw. A porcelain crown is thicker than a veneer, and, in some situations, this thickness is needed. A porcelain crown can be used for cosmetic reasons.

Crowns and veneers are situated and secured in the mouth similarly, using a light-sensitive resin placed between the original tooth and crown and then hardening that resin with a special curing light.

Consult with our team at South Florida Dental Center to determine which treatment aligns with your cosmetic goals and dental needs for a functional and enhanced smile.

Caring for Your Dental Crown

Maintaining the health and longevity of your dental crown is straightforward and can be easily incorporated into your daily oral care routine. Just like your natural teeth, dental crowns require a little TLC to keep them in top condition:
Treat your dental crown like any other tooth. Brush at least twice a day with fluoride toothpaste and a soft-bristled toothbrush. Be sure to pay extra attention to the gumline where the crown meets your natural tooth. Daily flossing is essential to remove plaque and food particles from between your teeth and around the crown.
Consider using an antibacterial mouthwash to help keep dental plaque and harmful bacteria at bay. Swishing with mouthwash can provide an extra layer of protection for your crown and the surrounding teeth.
While dental crowns are durable, it’s best to avoid extremely hard, crunchy, or chewy foods that could potentially damage or dislodge the crown. Be mindful of foods like ice cubes, hard nuts, popcorn kernels, taffy, and caramels.
If you grind or clench your teeth (bruxism), discuss this with your dentist. They may recommend wearing a custom mouth guard at night to protect your crown and natural teeth from the effects of grinding.
Don’t forget to schedule regular dental cleanings and exams with our team at the South Florida Dental Center. These routine visits are crucial for monitoring the health of your dental crown and ensuring it remains in optimal condition.
If you notice any changes, such as a loose crown, discomfort, or sharp edges, don’t hesitate to reach out to our team. Timely attention can prevent potential issues from escalating.
