Nothing beats a great smile!

Porcelain Crowns


A porcelain crown (caps) that has been cemented into place essentially becomes the new outer surface for the tooth, restoring a tooth to its original shape. A crown can help to strengthen a tooth by way of being a hard outer shell that encases the tooth structure that lies within it.

For both of these reasons, porcelain crowns are routinely made for teeth that have broken, worn excessively, or else have had large portions destroyed by tooth decay. Porcelain crowns are made to match the shape, size, and color or your teeth giving you a natural, long-lasting beautiful smile.

Treatment Procedures

A crown procedure usually requires two appointments. Your first appointment will include taking several highly accurate moulds (or impressions) that will be used to create your custom crown. A mold will also be used to create a temporary crown which will stay on your tooth for approximately two weeks until your new crown is fabricated by a dental laboratory.

While the tooth is numb, the dentist will prepare the tooth by removing any decay and shaping the surface to properly fit the crown. Once these details are accomplished, your temporary crown will be placed with temporary cement and your bite will be checked to ensure you are biting properly.

At your second appointment, your temporary crown will be removed, the tooth will be cleaned, and your new crown will be carefully placed to ensure the spacing and bite are accurate. You will be provided with care instructions and encouraged to have regular dental visits to check your new crown.
