A crown (or cap) is a covering that encases the entire tooth surface restoring it to its original shape and size. A crown protects and strengthens tooth structure that cannot be restored with fillings or other types of restorations.
Although there are several types of crowns, porcelain (tooth colored crown) are the most popular. They are highly durable and will last many years, but like most dental restorations, they may eventually need to be replaced. Porcelain crowns are made to match the shape, size, and color or your teeth giving you a natural, long-lasting beautiful smile.

What does getting a crown involve?
We understand your life is busy, which is why we've invested in an E4D Dentist system that enables us to provide you with dental care you need and want in a single visit. We scan your tooth rather than take a conventional impression. Then, a custom restoration is designed to fit your unique smile, after which is transferred to the milling unit where your crown or veneer is created right in our dental office. The final restoration is placed in your mouth the same day.
