Porcelain Crowns

Cosmetic & Restorative Dentistry in Monroe, WI

When simply filling in a tooth is not an option, a porcelain crown can save the day.

What Are Porcelain Crowns?

There are times when tooth decay or damage is too extensive for a normal filling to work. In these cases, the tooth needs a stronger reinforcement structure to regain full function. That is when we will usually recommend a porcelain crown.

porcelain crown covers a severely damaged tooth to restore its previous structure, providing a natural-lookingdurable restoration. Even when you bite something really hard, a porcelain crown can withstand the pressure because the dental-grade porcelain it is made of is extremely strong.

The Benefits of Porcelain Crowns

Porcelain crowns are an excellent option for restoring severely damaged teeth.

  • porcelain crown looks and feels just like a natural tooth. No one will be able to tell that it is a restoration.
  • If you have several damaged teeth, you might choose porcelain crowns for all of them to preserve your bite and still have a natural-looking smile.
  • With a porcelain crown, you don’t have to change your daily oral hygiene routine at all. Regular brushing and flossing as we recommend is sufficient to keep your crown looking good.
