What are Porcelain Crowns?

Porcelain crowns are long-lasting and durable tooth prosthetics. They can be metal alloy or more natural-looking porcelain.

Dental crowns are designed to strengthen and restore damaged and decayed teeth. Crowns are one of the most commonly used tooth restorations.

Why Choose Dental Crowns?

Crowns can be used for a wide variety of purposes. We may recommend a crown for you if you:

  • Have a deeply cracked, worn or fractured tooth

  • Have a tooth with a large cavity

  • Are undergoing a root canal

  • Have a tooth that is abnormally small, strangely shaped or very discolored

Dental crowns are often used in conjunction with other restorative dental treatments. For example, crowns can anchor a bridge in place on either side of a missing tooth. With dental implants, a porcelain crown is the finishing touch to create a natural looking smile.

Dental Crowns Procedure Overview

Crowns are fitted as part of a two stage process. During your first visit, your tooth is evaluated using x-rays to determine the amount of damage that needs to be repaired. You will discuss which type of crown you want for your restoration. You will go through a color matching process to pick the right shade to match your surrounding teeth. Your tooth will be prepared by removing a portion of the enamel all the way around and across the top. If the area of decay is significant, a filler material may be used to build up the damaged part of the tooth so it can support a crown.

After this, a mold will be made of the treated tooth as well as the opposing and adjacent teeth. This mold is sent to a dental lab so a custom crown with the correct size, shape and biting surface can be fabricated. You will be fitted with a provisional resin crown to cover up the prepared tooth. When your customized crown arrives, it will be bonded to your tooth using a strong dental cement. Any final shaping and polishing will be done at this stage. The goal is to ensure that your restored tooth looks good and is comfortable to use for biting and chewing.
