After teeth have had previous large fillings, excessive wear, or root canals there is need to stabilize and strengthen them for chewing function. Crowns are fabricated by a laboratory to precisely fit and mimic your natural teeth for esthetics and function. After having the 1 st appointment, a temporary crown will be cemented onto the tooth for a short period of time while the permanent crown is made. At the 2 nd appointment the permanent crown will be cemented or bonded into place. Porcelain crowns allow for excellent strength while giving you the most natural look possible to disguise the tooth among the teeth without restorations.
