A crown is a long lasting restoration for a tooth that is in need of full coverage protection due to decay or in danger of being damaged or broken. A crown covers the entire tooth and can be made of a variety of materials including porcelain which has the most natural appearance in the mouth.
Some porcelain crowns rely on a metal infrastructure for the strength to provide the tooth protection. With today’s technology it’s now possible to have the strength of metal in a more natural and undetectable all-porcelain metal-free crown.
“This patient had aged porcelain fused to metal crowns on her front teeth. With a cosmetic approach replacing her restorations created beautiful results that mimic the vitality of a natural tooth eliminating the dark edge along the gumline.” In recognition of his artistic expertise, Dr. Shimizu was awarded the prestigious Masterpiece in the Quintessence for this case.
“Porcelain crowns are virtually undetectable among your natural teeth. Using only state of the art materials and laboratories, Dr. Shimizu’s crowns offer beauty, function and reliability for superior results.”
