Porcelain Crowns by Charleston Dental Associates

Charleston Dental Associates offers porcelain crowns to patients throughout Charleston SC with damaged, weakened or discolored teeth.

“In cosmetic dentistry, a crown is a type of dental restoration which completely caps or encircles a tooth or dental implant.” Wikipedia

A crown covers a tooth to restore it to its natural shape and size, while strengthening and improving the appearance of a tooth. Crowns require more tooth structure removal than veneers do, so a crown procedure covers more of the tooth than a veneer procedure.

Charleston Dental Associates uses porcelain crowns to:

  • Aesthetically lighten teeth, narrow gaps, and reduce crowding
  • Repair a fractured tooth
  • Reinforce remaining tooth so that it can support a large filling
  • Reinforce extremely worn down teeth
  • Restore an implant
  • Cover badly shaped or discolored teeth

During a porcelain crown procedure, Charleston Dental Associates reduces the area of the tooth so the crown can fit over it. We send an impression of the tooth to the dental lab that fabricates the crown. We fit a temporary crown over the tooth until the lab finishes your permanent crown. We take special care to match the color, bite, shape, and length of your natural teeth.

Advanced technology has made the use of porcelain Crowns desirable due to their strength and durability. Best of all is the ability to match your teeth perfectly as part of a natural, beautiful smile.
