Porcelain Crowns


Crowns constructed with modern, natural-looking porcelain can restore function, appearance, and the proportion of your smiling face.

If more than half of your tooth has been restored with a filling, a crown is necessary. Without adequate support, the tooth may break away around the filling. As a rule, when fillings get larger, teeth become weaker. That is why a crown is necessary. A crown covers the entire tooth and holds it together. Crowns are used when large fillings wear out, when a tooth is cracked, or when cosmetic improvements must be made on teeth.

As this movie shows, some dentists use ugly silver or gold crowns (caps). Dr. Stone never uses any material other than dental-quality porcelain. You are assured that your crown will have the utmost combination of strength and beauty.
