Porcelain Crowns

Porcelain crowns can be thought of as custom made caps that help to preserve and protect your existing damaged tooth in order to preserve its functionality. The crown sits over your existing tooth to cover the entire outer surface. A molded impression of your teeth is made, and then the restoration is created in the dental laboratory.

Porcelain crowns withstand heavy biting pressures, and are a very strong and durable treatment option. A high-quality dental crown can last you 10 to 15 years, but this depends on how well you take care of your teeth. Dental crowns require as much care as your other natural teeth. You may require crowns if:

  • Your tooth has undergone much decay
  • If a large portion of your tooth has fractured
  • If you had a root canal treatment
  • If you have a large cavity
  • If you have had a dental implant to replace a missing tooth
  • If you suffer from acid erosion due to a poor diet to teeth grinding
  • For cosmetic reasons such as to improve the aesthetics of your smile
