Porcelain Crowns Hartford
If you suffer from dental complications, you may benefit from porcelain crowns, available at our Hartford, Connecticut dental practice. Natural-looking dental prosthetics, porcelain crowns can be used to treat teeth that are cracked, chipped, misshapen, or otherwise damaged. However, unlike some other dental prosthetics, such as porcelain veneers which provide primarily aesthetic benefits, porcelain crowns are functional and effective, and can restore your oral health and improve your bite.

Our team, led by Dr. Steven M. Balloch, is dedicated to providing outstanding patient care and will work alongside you to meet your aesthetic and dental health goals.

For the last several years, Pamela has come to Dr. Balloch for everything from general dentistry to extensive dental work. During her dental treatment testimonial, she says that she finds the staff so friendly that she often chats with them in the office and over the phone. Having moved out of the area a couple of years before, she tried other dentists, but came back to Dr. Balloch and his team because of their compassion and expertise.Watch More Videos <
Placing Porcelain Crowns
A porcelain crown completely covers a damaged tooth, restoring its functionality, and preventing further damage to the tooth that is being treated. To place a porcelain crown, the tooth that is being treated will first be thoroughly cleaned and prepared for the crown. It is necessary to remove a specified amount of material from the damaged tooth so that the crown will look natural and will fit precisely. Once the tooth has been prepared, a mould will be made so that the porcelain crown can be custom fabricated in our dental laboratory. While the permanent crown is being made, a custom temporary crown will be used to protect the prepared tooth.
Once the porcelain crown is complete, the temporary crown will be removed and replaced. A test fitting will first be made to ensure that the crown fits properly; if need be, small adjustments can be made so that the crown can be comfortably secured. When ready, the porcelain crown will be bonded with dental cement, and will look, feel, and function just as a natural tooth would.
People tell me that I have a wonderful smile and that makes me want to smile more, something I never wanted to do before. If I had the chance to go back and do it again, I would without any questions. Thanks, Dr. Balloch, for giving me the smile of my dreams.
