• Crowns

  • Crowns are a cosmetic restoration used to improve your tooth’s shape or to strengthen a tooth. Crowns are most often used for teeth that are broken, worn, or have portions missing due to tooth decay.

    A crown, or "cap", is cemented onto an existing tooth and usually covers the portion of your tooth above the gum line. In effect, the crown becomes your tooth’s new outer surface. Crowns can be made of porcelain, metal (usually gold), porcelain/metal combined, ceramic or zirconia. Porcelain and ceramic crowns are most often preferred in aesthetic cases because they mimic the translucency of natural teeth. However, the new zirconia crowns have been showing superior strength properties for posterior teeth restorations.

With this special technology we are able to offer our patients SAME-DAY crowns, and spare them the hassles of wearing temporary crowns and having a 2nd dental visit.
