Eliminate Imperfections With Crowns

If image and quality are a priority, then visible silver fillings, broken, cracked or discolored teeth shouldn't be a part of your smile. Today's cosmetic dentistry provides many solutions to aesthetic problems and crowns may be the best solution for you.



A crown is a dental restoration that covers the entire tooth and provides the following solutions:

Replaces a cracked or leaking filling
Replaces a large filling
Restores a fractured or broken tooth
Covers a discolored or misshapen tooth
Covers a dental implant
Covers a tooth that has been treated with a root canal

If you have large visible fillings when you speak or smile, crowns can eliminate the metallic look. They completely cover discolored and chipped teeth. In their place we will put a natural-looking crown that blends in with the rest of your smile. Crowns can give the appearance of a perfect smile!

Choose Porcelain for a Natural Transformation

Crowns made of tooth-colored porcelain are ideal to camouflage imperfections in your smile. Current technology allows us to closely match the shade of your crown to surrounding teeth—or, if you prefer, you may choose to brighten your smile and have your crown blended to match. Crowns replace less than aesthetic teeth with a carefully shaped and perfectly tinted tooth.

Porcelain, or porcelain fused to metal, crowns will be advised based on your specific need.
