Crowns

Crowns-General

  • You may need a crown if:
  • Your tooth has fractured
  • And old crown or filling has failed
  • You've had root canal therapy
  • You have a very large cavity
  • You'd like to improve a tooth's appearance

 

Crowns restore and protect teeth
A crown is a custom-made restoration that completely covers your tooth. Crowns not only repair and strengthen a damage tooth, they can also be used to improve your appearance by covering a discolored or misshapen tooth.

The procedure
Crowns require at least two visits. We'll prepare and shape your tooth, then take impressions. A dental lab will make a model from these impressions, and use the model to create your new crown from porcelain, gold or other alloys, or a combination of these materials.

All-Porcelain Crowns

New technology
White crowns used to only be made of porcelain fused to metal, often leaving a dark gray area at the gum-line. Now, we have the technology to create your crown entirely from porcelain. All-porcelain crowns are translucent, like your natural teeth, so they look great!

Strength and beauty
An all-porcelain crown is a custom made restoration that is bonded to your tooth, covering it completely. They repair and strengthen damage teeth, and can also be used to improve your appearance by covering discolored or misshapen teeth.

The procedure
Crowns require at least two visits. We'll prepare and shape your tooth, then take impressions. A dental lab will make a model from these impressions, and use the model to create your natural-looking new all porcelain crown.
