Porcelain Crowns

General Dentistry

If you crack your tooth, you may notice a quick, sharp pain when you chew, and often you need a porcelain crown. To accept a crown, the natural tooth is shaved to a prescribed height and width, an impression or a digital scan is taken then sent to Van Hook Dental Studio.

Additionally, a tooth that has been treated with a root canal will almost always need to be covered with a crown. That’s because there is no live nerve bringing blood supply to the tooth it’s a high risk for cracking in half. This way, you’ll be biting with the strength of a hardy porcelain crown and not a weak, dead tooth.

Porcelain crowns look just like actual teeth, and they can be matched to any tooth shade. So, in addition to fixing a crack or protecting a root canal, they can also be cosmetic—placed over your reduced tooth so that you can achieve a more ideal shape, size, symmetry, and color.

Milling and 3D printing can now be used to get the most precise fit. All crowns need the proper fit, and the most beautiful front crowns need a specially built porcelain finish that is expertly done by a master technician at Van Hook Dental studio. This can only be accomplished by Drs. Leonard and David Gordon pre-planning pictures, using the high-tech SPECTRA SHADE for color match, and skillfully contouring the teeth so the crowns perfectly fit.
