Dr. Pier and her team at Dentistry Lahaina may recommend a porcelain crown if you have broken or fractured teeth, teeth with large decay, fractured fillings or large fillings, if the tooth has had a root canal or for cosmetic enhancement. A crown is a covering that encases the entire tooth surface restoring it to its original shape and size. A crown protects and strengthens tooth structure that cannot be restored with fillings or other types of restorations.
Although there are several types of crowns, porcelain (tooth-colored crown) are the most popular, because they resemble your natural teeth. Porcelain crowns are custom designed and fitted to look, function, and feel just like your natural teeth. Made from a specially formulated dental ceramic, porcelain crowns can match the color, translucency, and texture of natural tooth enamel; using modern techniques and formulations, today’s porcelain crowns can withstand even the heaviest wear. Porcelain crowns are made to match the shape, size, and color or your teeth giving you a natural, long-lasting beautiful smile.
Porcelain crowns are a safe, natural-looking, and permanent cosmetic dental option for people who have suffered extensive damage to their teeth.
