Lifelike Porcelain Crowns
Dental crowns have long been a popular and effective method for restoring and improving teeth with a number of different concerns. Also referred to as a cap, a dental crown is designed to closely mimic a specific tooth, and is then bonded in place over the tooth, concealing it all the way to the gum line. Because they completely cover a compromised tooth, dental crowns are able to restore teeth that are structurally damaged; improve teeth that are severely blemished; or strengthen a tooth that has received a large filling or root canal. In some cases, a porcelain crown can also be coupled with a dental implant to replace a lost or extracted tooth.
Using advanced porcelain, and in some cases more lifelike zirconia, Dr. Huffstutler crafts highly lifelike dental crowns that not only restore your smile but also reestablish its youthful appearance. Dental porcelain is tinted to match the natural color and hue of your healthy teeth, and is also crafted to reflect light in the same manner as your natural tooth enamel. Like porcelain, zirconia also offers highly realistic results, but is much stronger than porcelain and may be recommended for visible teeth that are further back along your dental ridge.
