Crowns - Porcelain and Gold

Your teeth undergo a tremendous amount of stress during your lifetime. Teeth may show this wear in a variety of ways, including discoloration, chipping, and cracking. After some tooth preparation, crowns are specifically fitted over your natural tooth structure, restoring functionality and enhancing the appearance of your smile.

All-porcelain crowns restore your teeth and smile to look brilliant once again. All-porcelain crowns are shaped and shaded to match your teeth flawlessly, and to feel as genuine as your natural teeth. This type of crown is the most natural looking crown available. Along with the traditional laboratory- created all-porcelain crowns, Johnson Dental offers you CEREC® porcelain restorations, which only take a single visit to complete.

Porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns are also available to restore and protect damaged teeth. Crowns made this way have a metal base that is coated on the outside, with porcelain that is shaded to match your surrounding teeth. The benefit of this type of crown is that it requires less tooth structure removal than all-porcelain crowns, while still looking like very natural.

You may also elect to have an all-gold crown customized to fit your smile. The gold alloy used in making all-gold crowns has ideal properties for dental restorations. The alloy is easily workable, allowing for a precise fit to your natural tooth structure. It is also very durable (resistant to chipping and cracking), and it will not create abnormal wear on your other natural teeth that contact it when you speak or chew.

If you have pain when chewing or temperature sensitivity, ask Drs. Aaron and Kristi Johnson if crowns are for you.
