Dental crowns are a restoration used to improve your tooth’s strength, function, shape, and appearance. Dental crowns are most often used for teeth that are broken, worn, or have portions destroyed by tooth decay.
Porcelain crowns for teeth are “caps” cemented onto an existing tooth which fully cover the portion of your tooth above the gum line. In effect, the tooth crown becomes your tooth’s new outer surface. Dental crowns can be made of porcelain, metal, or both. Depending on the location of your tooth, we can recommend the best tooth crown options based on the goals you have for your dental health and appearance of your smile.
Your tooth crown is created in a lab from your unique tooth impression which allows a dental laboratory technician to examine all aspects of your bite and jaw movements. Your tooth crown is then sculpted just for you so that your bite and jaw movements function normally once the crown is placed.
Dental crowns are one of the most common cosmetic dental restorations and a tooth crown can improve the function and appearance of a tooth as well as prolong its useful life.
