A porcelain crown is custom-made to cover the entire crown of the tooth, which means it finishes right at the gum line. Since a porcelain crown encapsulates the tooth as the whole, this type of dental restoration is commonly used to treat large cavities and strengthen the overall structure of the tooth.
A porcelain crown will protect and strengthen a tooth that cannot be adequately repaired with a white filling or other dental procedure. Our dentists will only recommend a crown when the tooth is in danger of failing or when a cavity threatens the overall health of the tooth.
Restore your Natural Smile
Before the dentist can place a crown on one of their client’s natural teeth, they must first prepare the tooth; this includes removing some bits of the natural tooth permanently. Since some of the natural tooth is removed, our dentist will only decide to use a crown when the structure of the tooth is in danger of failing, or when a cavity threatens the overall health of tooth.
Our dentists, with many years of dental experience, are especially helpful when discussing their clients’ individual situation. Providing valuable advice with the decision making, they will discuss the overall affordability of the available dental options and the benefits to your teeth, smile and overall health. You will be supported, whichever option you feel is right for you.
