Porcelain Crowns

When a tooth needs a restoration, sometimes the best choice is an all- porcelain crown. It has the delicate translucency of your natural teeth.

An all-porcelain crown has several advantages. It’s strong and durable; it has the life-like appearance of natural teeth, and because there’s no metal, it’s a good choice for front teeth. The crown is precision-crafted in a lab, so it may take two or more appointments to restore your tooth with a porcelain crown.

Placing a porcelain crown

On your first visit, we’ll choose a color that matches your natural teeth.

We may also use a rubber dam to protect your mouth while we work. And we won’t start until we’re sure you’re comfortable.

Then we remove any decay and shape the tooth with the handpiece.

Next, we place a small impression string between the tooth and gum to gently push the gum away. This step helps us get an accurate impression.

When the area is ready, we’ll remove the string, and then take an impression of your teeth. The lab uses this to create a crown that precisely fits your tooth and bite.
In the meantime, we often place a temporary crown.
On your next visit, we remove the temporary and try in your new porcelain crown.

We’ll make sure you love the way it looks and feels, and then we cement the crown into place.

When you need a crown, porcelain crowns are a natural-looking choice for a beautiful and healthy bite.
