Porcelain Crowns

Adult Dentistry Porcelain Crowns

A crown (or cap) is a tooth-shaped covering that fits over the entire surface of a decayed or damaged tooth to restore its original shape and function. Whereas a filling typically restores part of a tooth, a crown can be used when a much larger portion of the tooth requires restoration.

Although crowns can be made from several different materials, porcelain is the most popular choice because it extremely natural-looking and luminous. Porcelain crowns are fully customizable, highly durable, and often a more cost-friendly option than possible alternative treatments. We use the most advanced technology and safest materials to create crowns designed for your comfort and protection. As with natural teeth, proper oral hygiene, good eating habits, and regular dental visits are recommended to extend the life of the crown.

Crowns are a great option for:

  • Fixing broken, fractured, or decayed teeth
  • Cosmetic enhancement (for example, making teeth even or covering discolored teeth)
  • Repairing fractured fillings
  • When you need a large filling
  • A safe alternative to extraction

A crown procedure usually requires two appointments. During first appointment, your dentist will take several highly accurate impressions (molds) that will be used to create your custom porcelain crown. A mold will also be used to create a temporary crown that will protect your tooth while your new crown is fabricated by a dental laboratory, which takes about two weeks.

During your second appointment, your temporary crown will be removed and the underlying tooth will be thoroughly cleaned. Your new crown will then be carefully secured in place for a precise and comfortable fit.

Feel free to contact us at our dental office if you have any questions about porcelain crowns or want to schedule a consultation. We proudly serve Norwood, Walpole, and surrounding areas.
