A crown is a restoration that completely covers a tooth like a cap. Crowns can be made of porcelain, gold, zirconia, ceramic or a combination. The decision of what material is used is based on your individual tooth and bite. Crowns are used when a tooth is beyond repair with a filling. Crowns mimic the size and shape of a natural tooth and are custom made for you and your bite. If cared for properly crowns can last for many years. We pride ourselves on taking extra time to custom shade each porcelain crown to make sure they mimic your natural color.
