Porcelain Dental Crowns in Boca Raton
All-Porcelain, Durable Crowns
A crown is a tooth-shaped covering placed over a natural tooth to protect it, add strength and/or restore its shape or size. Our doctors are skilled at designing and placing crowns. Their eye for the artistic ensures the shape and color of your crown is exactly right, that it fits perfectly and that it is beautiful and looks natural.
During your free cosmetic consultation, the doctor will go over the ways he can improve your smile.
How We Create Your Crown
First, the doctor will take a digital impression of your tooth, then send that data to one of our trusted labs. The lab uses that impression to mill your new crown out of a single block of porcelain using 3D CAD/CAM technology.
What Crowns Are Used For
You may need a crown due to:
- Broken or cracked teeth
- Extensive tooth decay
- A tooth that has had root canal therapy
- Large metal or tooth-colored fillings that weaken the remaining tooth
- Teeth that have large fillings that are breaking down and cannot be refilled
- A permanently stained or discolored tooth
- A misaligned or misshaped tooth
Sometimes a crown is not the optimal solution, and other dental procedures such as porcelain veneers or dental implants are more appropriate. Our doctors will thoroughly assess your situation, present you with your options and recommend the best solution for you.
