When a dental filling is too large, bacteria and decay can leak under the filling and cause damage to the nerve and the tooth. A digital scan is made of the damaged tooth and a custom covering (crown) is fabricated and bonded over the remaining healthy tooth structure, restoring the tooth to function and cosmetics.
All Porcelain Crowns do not require the metal for strength. The result is a much more esthetic crown, virtually indistinguishable from a natural tooth. The translucent properties of all porcelain mimic those of natural teeth and a re bonded to the existing tooth structure for an extremely durable and long lasting result.
