A crown is an artificial restoration that fits over the remaining part of a prepared tooth, making it strong and giving it the shape of a natural tooth. Sometimes known as a ‘cap’.
Crowns are used to repair teeth damaged by decay or trauma. Porcelain crowns restore up to 98% of the use of a damaged tooth and 100% of its appearance.
Crowns are now more popular because they are more aesthetically pleasing and depending on what exactly they’re made from, can be equally strong and durable. Porcelain crowns are often used to replace unsightly metal crowns.
To place a crown, our cosmetic dentist will carefully reshape your existing tooth so that the crown will have a natural appearance and close fit. Through the use of sophisticated materials and technology, an experienced cosmetic dentist can fit you with a porcelain crown that looks and feels and functions exactly like your natural tooth.
