Porcelain Dental Crowns in Boca Raton
All-porcelain, durable Crowns
A crown is a tooth-shaped covering placed over a natural tooth that protects it, adds strength, or restores its shape or size.
Our crowns are made of strong, natural-looking porcelain. Dr. Radu has extensive experience designing and placing crowns. With his artistic eye, he makes sure the shape and color of your crown is exactly right, that it fits perfectly, and is aesthetically pleasing.
How we create your Crown
Dr. Radu carefully takes an impression of your tooth, which is then sent to one of our quality labs, along with all additional specifications. We have a lab on our premises, and we also use a lab in Germany. The lab then takes a digital scan of the impression and the crown is milled out of a single block of porcelain using 3D CAD/CAM technology
Crowns that are made for the back teeth, which take the brunt of hard chewing and grinding, are made of very strong zirconia. For the front teeth, our crowns are a mixture of zirconia and e-max. E-max is a type of ceramic that is very strong while also having a translucent quality for aesthetics.
What Crowns are used for
You may need a crown because of:
- 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 optimum solution and other dental procedures such as porcelain veneers or dental implants are more appropriate. Dr. Radu will recommend the best treatment option after a thorough exam and consultation.561.220.0454
