Full Porcelain Crowns


Your smile is what most people notice when they first meet you. And if your front or other teeth are either damaged or decayed or even if there is a gap, it can affect your overall appearance as well as confidence levels.

Porcelain crowns replace the exterior portion of a tooth to re-establish its original function and to create a natural appearance and enhance your smile. Porcelain Crowns are the treatment of choice in situations where tooth decay has destroyed most of the original tooth, when a traumatic event has caused damage, or due to severe enamel erosion. They are also an option for people who grind and clench their teeth so much that the original structure of their teeth has been compromised.

The great benefit to porcelain crowns is they can not only replicate the original tooth in function, but can be designed to look like the original--or even better. When patients select a porcelain veneer for cosmetic reasons, they’re usually covering up the front portion of the tooth that has some esthetic flaw. A porcelain crown is thicker and stronger than a porcelain veneer. A porcelain crown can be used for cosmetic reasons, however you must seek the advice of your dentist.


Partial crowns, often referred to as onlays, are a type of restoration or filling that covers one or more cusps. An inlay is similar to a filling but the work resides completely within the cusps on a tooth’s chewing surface.

When it comes to choosing the perfect type of dental crown, porcelain crowns rank high in the list for the following reasons.
