Crowns are like caps that are cemented onto teeth to reinforce their structure and function. A tooth that has weakened due to trauma, root canal treatment or wear can be treated with the help of crowns. Dental implants are also used to support a crown when a tooth needs replacement.

All these dental traumas may or may not be associated with a cut or torn lip and gums, which can be very painful and increases the risk of contracting an infection.

How are they made?

Porcelain crowns are made entirely out of porcelain or ceramic material. The tooth that needs the crown is first cut and shaped to make space for the crown. An impression is made of the tooth then sent to a dental lab where the crown is fabricated. At the subsequent appoint, the crown is tried-in and then cemented onto the tooth with tooth-colored cement.

What makes Porcelain Crowns unique?

Porcelain is the only dental material that matches the natural tooth structure the most.

  • It is semi-translucent like the natural enamel
  • Allows the transmission of light and the color of the cement used to bond it to the tooth structure beneath
  • Durable and strong
  • Excellent esthetic results as compared to all-metal and metal-ceramic (PFM) crowns
