Cover damaged teeth with porcelain crowns.
A crown, also known as cap, is designed to completely cover a damaged tooth—extending down the sides to fit snugly at the gum line—and is cemented into place so that the tooth can once again look and function look a natural tooth. Your dentist may recommend a crown if your tooth has enough decay that it cannot hold a filling or if your tooth is cracked or broken and in danger of cracking down to the root if left unattended. In some cases, your dentist might recommend a bridge to replace one or more teeth. Call us to book a consultation today to find out if porcelain crowns are the right fit for you.
Why choose porcelain crowns?
While metal and porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns can help improve dental function, all-porcelain crowns can provide the same improved dental function as well as aesthetically pleasing results. Dental porcelain is available in a wide selection of different shades, making it easy for your dentist to match the porcelain material to the natural colour of your smile. All-porcelain crowns also tend to be much less abrasive than metal crowns, so they will not compromise the function or strength of the nearby healthy teeth.
Porcelain caps do not require your dentist to remove as much of your tooth’s structure to place the crown as would be needed for metal restorations. This means that a strong base can be created for the restoration while also preserving a healthy tooth structure.
