All Porcelain Crowns
A porcelain crown is a tooth-shaped “cap” that is placed over a tooth to restore its shape, size, strength or improve its appearance. When cemented into place, the crown will fully encase the visible portion of a tooth and match the shade of your surrounding teeth. Porcelain crowns are typically used to protect a weak or cracked tooth, remedy severe discoloration, support a tooth with a large filling, hold a dental bridge in place or cover a dental implant. The procedure requires two visits with the dentist: the first to prepare the tooth and make a molded impression and a second (usually within 2 weeks) to permanently place the crown.
