Fillings work effectively to treat minor areas of decay in teeth, but for more serious damage like cracks and extensive decay, we recommend porcelain crowns. Made to fit securely and comfortably over your teeth, crowns restore the strength and functionality of damaged teeth. Sometimes referred to as caps, crowns function preventively as well, maintaining oral health by protecting your teeth from further damage or decay and sustaining the alignment of your jaw.
Thanks to the latest techniques and technology of modern dentistry, your porcelain crowns can look completely natural. We use a precise color-matching system to match the ceramic in your crowns to the regular color of your teeth, giving you a seamless smile. Besides looking beautiful, porcelain veneers are also durable and long-lasting, making them a preference for dentists and patients.
A Smooth Transition
If you decide that porcelain crowns are the best option for you, we can prepare and place them in two visits, depending on your current oral health. Once your crowns are set, you can maintain your new and improved smile like natural teeth by brushing and flossing daily and seeing us for routine checkups and professional hygiene, something we strongly recommend.
