Crowns are not limited to simply replacing the original tooth, but can be designed to create an even better esthetic appearance. Crowns are the treatment of choice in situations where tooth decay has damaged most of the original tooth, when a traumatic occurrence has caused harm, or in cases of severe enamel wearing away. 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. Porcelain crowns replace the exterior portion of a tooth to re-establish its original function and to create a natural appearance.

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. Partial crowns, often referred to as onlays, are a type of restoration or filling that covers one or more cusps. While porcelain crowns are very durable, they do not have the flexibility of natural teeth, so avoiding certain foods may be necessary.

A follow-up appointment will be scheduled to assess the crowns shortly after they're placed, so we can assess the work and see how your mouth is reacting to the crowns. The Crown and Bridge in the front teeth can replace one or more missing teeth with fixed replacements and restore your natural smile beautifully.
