Porcelain Crowns/Tooth Bonding FAQs

Porcelain Crowns
When a patient has a natural tooth that has been damaged due to decay or injury, or is weakened due to a root canal procedure or outdated filling, Dr. Massa may recommend a porcelain crown.  A porcelain crown, or cap, is shaped out of porcelain to fit on top of your teeth and comfortably fit your unique bite.  Bonded onto the tooth with a special adhesive and fitted at the gumline, a porcelain crown can add significant strength to your tooth, protect the enamel under it, and allow you to chew normally with your restored tooth.  Because the porcelain material used for crowning is tooth-colored and chosen to fit your tooth shade, modern porcelain crowns look and feel just like natural teeth. 

For your porcelain crown, Dr. Massa will remove any decayed or old dental work, shape and contour your natural tooth, and take a mold of the prepared enamel. 

Tooth Bonding
Dental bonding provides Dr. Massa’s patients with a convenient way to rejuvenate their smiles almost instantly.  Fix chipped, cracked, discolored, or misaligned teeth with this natural-looking and affordable procedure.  Bonding, as the name explains, uses a composite bonding material to create the most desirable surface for one or multiple teeth.  You can choose the shade of your bonded tooth because each is custom designed.  Dr. Massa will prepare the surface of your tooth and apply a conditioning substance.  Next, the bonding resin is applied while in putty form, and then molded to create the desired shape.  Dr. Massa will then harden the bonding material with a special UV light.  After a few final touches, your new bonded tooth is polished and ready to go!
