Porcelain dental crowns are highly effective for resolving a range of issues, from fractured teeth to dental implants. Talk to Hawthorn Road Family Dental about whether dental crowns are right for your needs.
Cosmetic dentistry often involves crown work. Porcelain crowns are fixed prosthetic devices that are cemented onto existing teeth or implants and can only be removed by a dentist.
A crown is used to entirely cover or ‘cap’ a damaged tooth. Besides strengthening a damaged tooth, a crown can be used to improve its appearance, shape or alignment.
Our dentists can also put porcelain dental crowns on top of an implant to provide a tooth-like shape, structure, and function. We’ll match your porcelain crowns to the colour of your natural teeth.
