Porcelain crowns can be used to repair teeth that have been too damaged by decay or trauma to support a filling. A porcelain crown can restore up to 98% of the use of the tooth and 100% of its appearance.
A porcelain crown functions as a cap by fitting over and covering the entire surface of the damaged tooth. While in the past, metal crowns were widely used, porcelain crowns are now the preferred choice. In addition to being more aesthetically pleasing, porcelain crowns add strength to damaged teeth and can even be used to replace traditional metal crowns.
If you need a porcelain crown, Dr. Krasowski will carefully reshape your existing tooth so that the crown can be placed to create a natural appearance and fit. Through the use of sophisticated technology, Dr. Krasowski can fit you with a porcelain crown that looks, feels and functions exactly like your natural tooth.
