A dental crown is a general dentistry procedure sometimes called a cap because it covers or ‘caps’ the entire tooth, so none of your original tooth is visible. We fabricate our dental crowns from a range of durable materials, including gold, porcelain fused to metal, porcelain only, and zirconia. Once we fit a dental crown, it provides excellent protection for the tooth underneath. A well-crafted, custom crown can improve the appearance of your smile.
Porcelain dental crowns are often the most effective way to preserve as much of the structural integrity of a damaged tooth as possible while restoring its health, shape, and overall appearance. Custom-crafted to cover the entire surface area of the tooth, dental crowns are an excellent treatment for teeth that are cracked, broken, or structurally weak. By restoring strength to these weaker teeth, our dentists can significantly reduce and often eliminate tooth pain or sensitivity. In the process, porcelain crowns also conceal flaws in the appearance of the teeth, resulting in a more radiant, balanced, and aesthetically pleasing smile.

Benefits of Dental Crowns
Although there are a variety of options for replacing missing teeth or teeth too damaged to salvage, it is always best to save some of the natural tooth, if at all possible. Aside from the removal of decay or other areas of damage, dental crowns require further reshaping of the natural tooth to accommodate their size. They also protect the basic foundation of the natural tooth, which eventually can be lost if left untreated. As a result, dental crowns help patients avoid more serious future dental problems associated with missing teeth, such as the degradation of the jawbone and other oral tissues, and the shifting of surrounding teeth from their optimal positions.
At Gentle Dental, we use finely crafted porcelain dental crowns in a number of treatments. Sometimes we use them to secure larger fillings in teeth that are fragile or otherwise structurally compromised. They are also used to support the replacement teeth in dental bridges, as well as to replace missing individual teeth when attached to dental implant posts. Dr. Knop, Dr. Ilyabayev and Dr. Gelfand rely on their years of dental expertise to create dental crowns that blend beautifully with surrounding natural teeth, ensuring results that are as cosmetically impressive as they are strong and functional.
