Among the most effective and versatile restorations available at Calavera Hills Dental are porcelain dental crowns. These crowns blend aesthetics and functionality to restore teeth compromised by damage or decay. They are custom-made to cover the entire visible portion of your tooth, restoring its original shape and appearance as well as safeguarding it against further harm. Our dentist and team have chosen to use porcelain when creating dental crowns due to its remarkable similarity to natural tooth enamel, ensuring that your final restoration blends seamlessly with your smile for a durable and visually appealing result.

Dental crowns can serve both restorative and cosmetic purposes. Dr. Christopher Layton may suggest a crown for a variety of reasons, including to:

  • Shield a tooth that has undergone root canal therapy
  • Serve as an anchor for a dental bridge
  • Complete the structure of a dental implant
  • Enhance the overall aesthetics of your smile
  • Correct the appearance of a misshapen tooth
  • Reinforce a tooth that is fractured or weakened
  • Provide support to a tooth with extensive fillings when there is minimal natural tooth structure left

The process of fitting a dental crown usually requires two appointments. The initial visit involves preparing the tooth and taking precise impressions to ensure the crown’s perfect fit and function. A temporary crown is then placed to protect the tooth while the final porcelain crown is being fabricated. During the follow-up appointment, this custom-made crown is securely affixed to the tooth, completing the restoration.

Porcelain crowns offer a durable, biocompatible and aesthetic solution for your smile, making them an excellent choice for a wide range of dental restoration needs.
