Dental Porcelain Crowns (Caps)

A crown (or cap) is a tooth-shaped covering that covers the entire tooth surface in order to restore its original shape and size or to improve its appearance. Whereas a filling restores only part of a tooth, a crown can restore the structure of a much larger portion.

Although crowns can be made from several different materials, porcelain is the most popular choice because it is extremely natural looking and luminous. Porcelain crowns are highly durable and will last for many years but, as with most dental restorations, they may eventually require repair or replacement.

Reasons for crowns:

  • To fix broken, fractured, or decayed teeth.
  • For cosmetic enhancement.
  • To repair fractured fillings.
  • For large fillings.

A crown procedure usually requires two appointments. During your first appointment, our dentist will take several highly accurate impressions (molds) that will be used to create your custom porcelain crown. A mold will also be used to create a temporary crown that will protect your tooth while your new crown is fabricated by a dental laboratory (this takes about two weeks).

During your second appointment, your temporary crown will be removed, the underlying tooth will be thoroughly cleaned, and your new crown will be carefully secured in place for a precise and comfortable fit.

At North Andover Dental Partners, we use the latest technology and finest materials to create porcelain crowns that offer superior fit, function, and aesthetics. We will provide instructions for the care of your new dental restoration. As with natural teeth, proper oral hygiene, good eating habits, and regular dental visits will help maintain the life of your new crowns.

Please contact us at our North Andover dental office if you have any questions about porcelain crowns or wish to schedule a smile consultation.
