If your smile has been compromised because of decay or damage to a single tooth, our office can provide natural looking restorations to address both cosmetic and functional needs. Customized porcelain crowns can reinforce the structure of the impacted tooth and restore the integrity of your smile.

What are Porcelain Crowns?

Porcelain crowns are custom-crafted dental caps that enclose the entire structure of the damaged tooth. They closely match the surrounding teeth to complete your smile. At All American Smile Dental Studios, we use only the highest-quality porcelain crowns, which mimic the look and feel of a natural tooth.

Dental crowns are a versatile treatment that can be used for both cosmetic and restorative dental procedures. Crowns can cover and protect a damaged tooth, act as a support for a dental bridge, or be affixed to a dental implant to replace missing teeth.

Determining Candidacy

When you come to our practice for an initial consultation, the dentist will thoroughly examine your teeth and gums before recommending the appropriate treatment. You may be a good candidate for porcelain crowns if you have:

  • Worn or misshapen teeth
  • A tooth that is significantly cracked or chipped
  • A decayed or damaged tooth
  • A tendency to grind your teeth
  • A misaligned bite
  • A single missing tooth that you wish to restore with a dental implant
  • Intrinsic discoloration that does not respond to professional teeth whitening treatments
  • Undergone a root canal treatment and have to restore the remaining tooth structure

As successful candidacy requires healthy teeth and gums, the dentist will first treat any signs of gum disease, including decay or damage, before performing a dental crown procedure. We will also determine if a more conservative treatment, such as an inlay or onlay, is sufficient.
