We offer a variety of general, cosmetic, and restorative dentistry procedures that can be used to achieve the smile patients have always wanted! When it comes to restoring smiles, many patients love to use dental crowns to provide coverage and protection. There are several types of dental crowns available, including ceramic and metal. Our team encourages patients to use porcelain crowns whenever possible.
What are dental crowns?
Crowns are dental restorations made to cover the visible portion of a tooth. Some patients refer to them as dental "caps" because they are placed over the teeth. Crowns are used in many situations. They may be used to:
- Cover a tooth with cosmetic imperfections
- Provide protection for a broken tooth
- Strengthen a tooth with a large filling from tooth decay
- Restore a smile that is missing a tooth with placement over a dental implant
- Fuse to a false tooth to create a dental bridge
- Cover a tooth that has had root canal therapy and may be weak
Why porcelain crowns?
When patients have dental work done, they are often worried about their restorations LOOKING like dental work. Most patients want restorations that look natural and blend in with their smile. Porcelain dental crowns are best because they are fabricated to match the color, shape, and size of the existing teeth.
