What are porcelain tooth crowns?

Porcelain crowns are essentially prosthetic caps or covers for your teeth that can be applied by a qualified cosmetic dentist.


What is porcelain bonding?

Porcelain bonding is the procedure by which a custom-colored resin is bonded to a section of your tooth and then precisely shaped to correct any cosmetic problems.


What conditions can porcelain tooth crowns and tooth bonding fix?

These easy procedures can be used to fix teeth that are chipped, cracked, decayed, gapped, too short, or otherwise damaged. If you have any of these conditions, you should contact us today to schedule a complimentary smile analysis.


How many appointments does it take to apply tooth crowns or to complete tooth bonding?

Tooth bonding can take as little as one appointment. Porcelain crowns can take anywhere from two to three office visits.


What is the process for applying porcelain tooth crowns?

The first step is to slightly shape the teeth that are receiving the crowns. Next, a mold of your teeth will be taken so the dental lab can create the custom crowns to fit perfectly over your teeth. On the last visit, the crowns will be tested to ensure the fit is correct before being bonded to your natural teeth.


How long will the results last?

Porcelain crowns can last decades with proper care. Tooth bonding generally lasts three to 10 years.
