Porcelain Crowns by Charleston Dental Associates

Charleston Dental Associates offers restorative dentistry treatments such as porcelain crowns to our patients in West Ashley and North Charleston SC.

A crown covers a tooth to restore it to its natural shape and size, which strengthens and improves the appearance of the tooth. Crowns require more tooth structure removal, hence cover more of the tooth than veneers.

At Charleston Dental Associates, we apply crowns to:

  • Aesthetically lighten teeth, narrow gaps, and reduce crowding
  • Repair a fractured tooth
  • Repair remaining tooth that cannot support a large filling
  • Repair extremely worn down teeth
  • Restore an implant
  • Cover badly shaped or discolored teeth
  • Strengthen endodontically treated teeth

Placing a Crown: How it Works

We will reduce the area of your tooth so the crown can fit over it. We will send an impression of the tooth to the dental lab for the crown fabrication. We will fit a temporary crown over the tooth until the permanent crown is made. We will make every consideration concerning 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.
