Crowns

Porcelain crowns are a suitable restoration to apply to a tooth where a sizable filling wears out, when a tooth is fractured, or to enhance the tooth’s overall appearance. The function of a porcelain crown is to provide protection for any tooth that has become too frail from decay to take on a filling, or that has a big fissure or crack in it.

The crown restores a tooth to its normal shape and size while fortifying and supporting it. This prevents the frail tooth from fragmenting, which could cause you to lose your tooth. 

We can also make use of crowns to attach dental bridges to the strong teeth on either side of a lost tooth (or teeth). We can match the color of the crowns with the natural color of your teeth so the fact that you received dental work is easily concealed. In addition, porcelain crowns can recondition misshapen or stained teeth to give you a wonderful smile.
