Porcelain Dental Crowns
When a tooth is not structurally stable due to tooth decay, extensive fillings or other damage, a porcelain dental crown, also called a cap, can restore both its stability and appearance with one simple treatment. A porcelain dental crown is a restoration that covers the entire surface of a tooth and restores it to its original size, shape, and color. We can match the color of your existing teeth to give you a seamless, radiant smile. Our dentists may recommend a porcelain crown to strengthen and protect a tooth that cannot be repaired by other dental restorations, including fillings.
Porcelain dental crowns can also improve your smile by:
- Replacing missing teeth or covering a dental implant
- Filling in unsightly gaps and spaces between your teeth
- Repairing cracks and chips in your teeth
- Covering a discolored or poorly shaped tooth
- Covering a tooth that has had a root canal
You can typically get a new porcelain dental crown in just two visits to Jasper Comprehensive Dentistry. Dr. Cummins or Dr. Eggers will prepare your tooth for your new crown, take an impression, and place a temporary crown during your first visit. After your new, custom-made crown has been finished, you’ll visit us for a second appointment where your doctor will remove the temporary and permanently place your final restoration.
