Porcelain Crowns in Randolph, NJ
A crown (or cap) is a covering that encases the entire tooth surface restoring it to its original shape and size. A crown protects and strengthens tooth structure that cannot be restored with fillings or other types of restorations.
Although there are several types of crowns, porcelain (tooth colored crown) are the most popular, because they resemble your natural teeth. They are highly durable and will last many years, but like most dental restorations, they may eventually need to be replaced. Porcelain crowns are made to match the shape, size, and color of your teeth giving you a natural, long-lasting beautiful smile.

What does getting a crown involve?
A crown procedure usually requires two appointments. Your first appointment will include making your existing tooth the proper shape to fit the new crown like a puzzle. Then, a digital impression will be recorded so a computer may determine the proper fit and shape of your new crown. Last, a temporary crown will be fabricated to stay on your tooth for approximately a few days (usually three) until your new crown is fabricated by a dental laboratory here in the United States.
At your second appointment, your temporary crown will be removed, the tooth will be cleaned, and your new crown will be carefully placed to ensure the spacing and bite are accurate.
You will be given care instructions and encouraged to have regular dental visits to check your new crown.
