Crowns Caps

Porcelain crowns, commonly referred to as caps, are hardened ceramic tooth coverings. There are many reasons you may need a dental crown on one or more teeth. These include:

  • Breaks or cracks in a tooth
  • Tooth decay
  • Fractured fillings
  • Filling replacement
  • Root canal treatment
  • Cosmetic enhancement

Without a doubt, all porcelain dental work will best mimic the look of your natural teeth. Metal does not look natural and while composite resin may be tooth colored, it does not allow any light to shine through it. Natural teeth are semi-translucent, allowing a small amount of light to shine through. Porcelain is also semi-translucent, thus most resembling the natural appearance of your regular teeth. Ask for a porcelain crown the next time you need a tooth capped!
