Aside from aesthetics, porcelain crowns also greatly improve a tooth’s function. The crown will strengthen the tooth.

What does getting a crown involve?
Appointments for Porcelain Crowns will usually require two visits. During your first appointment, we will take impressions of your teeth that will be used to create your highly accurate, custom crown. Your impression will also be used to make a mold which will star on your tooth temporarily while your new porcelain crown is being created.
During your next appointment, once your tooth is numb your dentist will remove the temporary crown, prepare the tooth, and carefully fit the crown.
