Porcelain crowns, or caps, usually require two appointments. Our doctors use crowns to treat broken, fractured, or decayed teeth. We also use them when fillings are too large or fractured when you have undergone a root canal, and for general cosmetic enhancement. Your crown will be custom-made to match the color, shape, and size of your natural teeth for the best possible appearance.
A crown is a porcelain structure used to cover up and protect an entire tooth, from the root up. Green Dental supports using crowns because they can restore the function of the tooth, as well as create a natural and healthy appearance.
After the procedure, you may notice sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures, but this will get better over time. While porcelain crowns are sturdy, we advise that you try to avoid chewing hard foods or objects like ice.
