In the world of solutions, many people think that you must sacrifice looks for function or vice-versa. But in a few cases, utility and beauty are wrapped up together in the same package. Think of the natural grace in a guitar’s neck or the curves of a sports car that make it as attractive as it is aero-dynamic.

These qualities are also shared by our high-quality porcelain dental crowns. Though they are primarily used as a functional restoration for damaged teeth, their smooth, clean shape and radiant appearance make them ideal for cosmetic improvements.

How Dental Crowns Work

A dental crown looks like a cap that is specially designed just for you. It covers your entire tooth with a restoration that mimics the look of your natural teeth remarkably well. One distinguishing characteristic of a dental crown is the materials and methods behind its construction. We have it fabricated in a high-tech laboratory where they use the best quality ceramic porcelain for a durable and realistic restoration.

The Advantages of a Cosmetic Dental Crown

Dr. Jesse Jenkins may offer you a few options when you have a tooth with some unsightly flaw. Among those options are porcelain veneers or inlays. Made of a material similar to a porcelain crown, veneers and inlays treat only individual tooth surfaces. Veneers cover the fronts of teeth, but only the front, while inlays usually fill grooves towards the middle of a damaged tooth. We will cement either restoration onto your teeth, but neither offers much structural support.

In contrast, a dental crown covers the entire tooth, and because it covers the tooth entirely, it restores the original stability.
