Porcelain Crowns

A porcelain crown (or cap) is a dental restoration that encases the entire tooth’s surface, restoring it to its original shape and size. A porcelain dental crown will strengthen and protect teeth that cannot be restored with other restorations, including composite fillings.

Your Los Angeles dentist may recommend that you receive a porcelain crown for many reasons, including:

  • A tooth has fractured, decayed, or broken
  • To enhance the cosmetic appeal of your smile
  • To replace fillings that have fractured or are too large
  • To fully restore a tooth that has received a root canal

Porcelain crowns are customized to completely match your natural teeth in shape, size, and color in order restore function and beauty to your smile. Please contact our LA dental practice to learn more about porcelain crowns and your options for enhancing your smile.
