The purpose of a dental crown is to encase a tooth with custom-designed material. Dental crowns, aka caps, preserve the functionality of damaged teeth. Porcelain crowns may be used to protect a cracked tooth or restore the functionality of a tooth with decay or a large filling. The use of a porcelain crown can bring satisfaction and renewed confidence to your smile.
Porcelain crowns provide a cosmetic improvement of your smile by concealing stains, discoloration, and chips located on the surface of your teeth. They are efficient and convenient, providing a pleasant cosmetic dentistry experience. They are translucent, so their color is influenced by the tooth under them.
The procedure begins with the design of impressions, which are created to help the veneers fit with your natural teeth. Your teeth will be prepared with a sanding process to clean the surface and shave off excess enamel.
