Looking to restore your brilliant smile? Dental crowns are strong recreations of natural teeth. Porcelain Crowns look just like original teeth, so no one will be able to tell the difference!
What are Crowns/Caps?
Crowns fit right over the top of the tooth, covering the entire structure through to the gum line. They cover, protect and seal the tooth to strengthen it. Crowns are often recommended or necessary in the following situations:
- There is a large section of tooth decay, so that a filling will not suffice.
- To remedy large old fillings that have broken down or are surrounded by decay.
- When a tooth is cracked and a filling will not suffice.
- When a tooth is fractured or broken.
- After certain dental procedures, such as a root canal.
Correctly designed and properly fit, dental crowns look and function like normal teeth. What’s more, crowns will also protect your teeth from further damage.
Metal-Free Porcelain Crowns for Teeth
If you’re looking for the most natural-looking cosmetic solution, porcelain or ceramic crowns are the answer. Crowns are strong, durable and look just like your natural teeth. We often recommend porcelain or ceramic crowns because of the precise color matching systems available and because of their hard-wearing durability.
Our dentist will prepare and seat your crown(s) normally in two appointments. Once placed, caring for a crown is no different than proper hygiene for your other teeth. Twice-daily brushing and daily flossing protects the teeth from decay, and regular visits to our office for professional cleanings and exams will ensure overall oral health.
