Porcelain Crowns

If more than half of your tooth has been restored with a filling, a crown is necessary for any further restoration. Without adequate support, the tooth may break away around the filling. As a rule, when fillings get larger, teeth become weaker. That is why a crown is necessary. A crown covers the entire tooth and holds it together. Crowns are used when large fillings wear out, when a tooth is cracked, or when cosmetic improvements must be made on teeth.

Porcelain crowns are an excellent restoration to use on a tooth where a large filling has worn out, when a tooth is cracked, or to improve the appearance of a tooth. We use durable, natural looking materials that blend in beautifully with your natural teeth.

Crowns can be matched to your natural tooth color so the fact that you have had dental work is easily concealed. Porcelain crowns can also restore stained or misshapen teeth for a wonderful smile. Crowns are also used to anchor dental bridges to the healthy teeth on each side of a missing tooth (or teeth).
