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.

What are porcelain crowns?

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.

How do porcelain crowns work?

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.

Other crown materials include gold and metal alloys, acrylic and ceramic. These are often stronger than porcelain and are recommended for back teeth. Alternatively, we can also bond porcelain to a metal shell for a strong and attractive alternative.

Why you might need dental crown work

Your dentist might recommend dental crowns to:

  • Replace a large filling when there isn’t enough tooth remaining
  • Protect a weak tooth from fracturing
  • Restore a fractured tooth
  • Attach a bridge
  • Cover a dental implant
  • Cover a discoloured or poorly shaped tooth
  • Cover a tooth that has had root canal treatment

Alternatively, your dentist may recommend porcelain veneers or porcelain inlays as the best option for you.
