Dental Porcelain Crowns (Caps)

A crown (or cap) is a tooth-shaped covering that covers the entire tooth surface in order to restore its original shape and size or to improve its appearance. Whereas a filling restores only part of a tooth, a crown can restore the structure of a much larger portion.

Although crowns can be made from several different materials, porcelain is the most popular choice because it is extremely natural-looking and luminous. Porcelain crowns are highly durable and will last for many years but, as with most dental restorations, they may eventually require repair or replacement.

Reasons for crowns:

  • To fix broken, fractured or decayed teeth.
  • For cosmetic enhancement.
  • To repair fractured fillings.
  • For large fillings.

A crown procedure usually requires two appointments. During your first appointment, one of our dentists will take several highly accurate impressions (molds) that will be used to create your custom porcelain crown. A mold will also be used to create a temporary crown that will protect your tooth while your new crown is fabricated by a dental laboratory (this takes about two weeks).

During your second appointment, your temporary crown will be removed and the underlying tooth will be thoroughly cleaned. Your new crown will then be carefully secured in place for a precise and comfortable fit.

At Auburn Dental Group, we use the latest technology and finest materials to create porcelain crowns that offer superior fit, function and aesthetics. We will provide instructions for the care of your new dental restoration. As with natural teeth, proper oral hygiene, good eating habits, and regular dental visits will help maintain the life of your new crowns.

Feel free to contact Auburn Dental Group if you have any questions about porcelain crowns or to schedule a smile consultation with one of our dentists.
