If you have decayed or damaged teeth that require more substantial treatment and protection than white fillings or porcelain inlays/onlays can provide, Dr. Jeffrey Bellisario may recommend porcelain dental crowns as a solution. Crowns restore not only the strength of a tooth, but also its appearance.
When to Use a Dental Crown
Dental crowns are a versatile tooth restoration that can be used in many different procedures. They are used in general, cosmetic, and restorative dentistry to:
- Protect a tooth that has been weakened by damage
- Increase the size of a tooth that has become too worn down and small
- Anchor dental bridges
- Cap dental implants
We offer custom-made dental crowns that are crafted from durable porcelain. In addition to their strength, porcelain crowns are tinted to match the exact color of your surrounding teeth, and are individually crafted for a perfect fit.
Protecting Damaged Teeth
Dental crowns help preserve the remaining healthy structure of your damaged teeth because they are placed over the tops of your teeth and bonded directly onto them, unlike traditional fillings which are packed into the cavities. Crowns not only feel and function like your natural teeth but blend seamlessly with your surrounding teeth for a flawless-looking smile.
