What You Should Know about Procelain CrownsThe word â€œporcelainâ€ is a little misleading when it comes to crowns. The dental material made from porcelain is actually quite strong and durable, and usually lasts for many years. A crown is typically recommended for teeth with so much decay present that they cannot be repaired with a filling. Crowns are also sometimes required to protect the surface of a tooth that has undergone a root canal.
Porcelain Crown ProcedureThe procedure involved in getting a new porcelain crown requires two visits to our office. During the first visit, Dr. Argandona will take an impression of the affected tooth, which will be used by a dental lab to create your new porcelain crown. She will then remove any existing decay and prepare the tooth for the crown by thoroughly cleaning the surface. Youâ€™ll be fitted with a temporary crown while the permanent one is being made. During the second visit (usually two weeks or so after the first), Dr. Argandona will fit you with your new permanent porcelain crown, ensuring that it fits comfortably and does not negatively impact your natural bite.

Great experience at Live Oak in Leander! Friendly staff, the Dental Hygienist Janine was great and very sweet. The dentist Priscila Donangelo was amazing – very knowledgeable, attentive, explained me everything that was going on and need to be done.
Dr. Argandoña and Dr. Donangelo are both great dentists and are also very caring. They are thorough but not pushy and they try to explain everything very well. I have also found both of them to be gentle, warm and compassionate, as well as accessible when I need them!
