Dental Crowns: Restorative Dentistry

Where damage to a person’s teeth is extensive, porcelain fused to metal crowns (PFM’s) is the cosmetic dental procedure of choice to make a smile appear as new and provide the biting strength you need for chewing food. All porcelain or ceramic crowns are also available, but they do not have the same strength due to the lack of a metal base.

The PFM crown is a reliable crown and method for repairing the most severe of dental problems. Full mouth reconstruction can be performed using PFM’s to achieve a beautiful smile and a functional bite. All ceramic crowns can accomplish the same, but there is higher risk of fracture from the biting forces of the back teeth.

It is usual for PFM crowns to last for 20 to 30 years, which is as close to permanent as dental procedures can get.


How long is a crown procedure?

Fitting a crown usually requires two visits to our office. Initially, we will remove decay, shape the tooth (teeth bonding), and fit it with a temporary crown of acrylic and composite resin material.

On your next visit the temporary crown will be removed and one of our dentist in Irvine will fit and adjust the final crown. It will be cemented into place and you will have a naturally beautiful tooth replacement.

Key Benefits

  • Replaces missing teeth
  • Offers support for badly broken teeth
  • Looks completely natural
  • Fixes the appearance of your smile and orthodontic disorders

What are the capabilities of crowns?

A dental crown, also called a tooth cap, is a type of dental restoration that covers a portion of a dental implant or natural tooth. Our dentists may recommend a dental crown to improve the appearance of your discolored, misshapen, or misaligned tooth. Crowns can strengthen and repair a damaged tooth so wouldn’t lose it and keep a complete and healthy smile.
