Crowns are a great solution for restoring your tooth to its appropriate shape and size. A crown covers the visible portion of your natural tooth all the way down to the gum line and may be recommended for several reasons. If you have a large filling that needs to be repaired or replaced, or if your tooth is weak or fractured, a porcelain crown might be your best option.
Your crown is fabricated out of porcelain at a dental lab after Dr. Petroff makes an impression of the tooth. A natural looking porcelain crown will not only restore your tooth to it’s appropriate shape and size, but it will also provide the added support necessary and aid in disbursing forces placed on your opposing teeth.
