Porcelain Jackets

When there is not enough tooth structure left, or the chewing demands in the mouth are too great for laminates, a stronger, more extensive restoration is needed.
Here we place porcelain jacket crowns. Porcelain Jackets are pure porcelain crowns placed on a fully prepared tooth. They are the most life-like of all full crown preparations.
The technique consists of preparing the teeth and taking an impression.
Temporary crowns are made while the permanent restorations are being fabricated in a dental lab.
Within two weeks, the porcelain jackets are permanently bonded onto the patient’s teeth.
