This means that there are NO IMPRESSIONS, NO TEMPORARIES, AND NO GETTING NUMB FOR A SECOND VISIT!

What exactly does a porcelain crown provide?

A crown strengthens your existing damaged tooth so as to preserve its functionality. Dental crowns are also commonly known as caps because a crown sits over your existing tooth covering the entire outer surface similar to how a baseball cap would cover your head.

Are dental crowns always the best option?

Crowns should not be the first treatment of choice just to improve the aesthetics of your teeth, because your dentist needs to grind a significant portion of the original tooth away.

Less invasive and longer lasting alternatives include porcelain inserts such as inlays, onlays, and even ¾ crowns. All of these options should be considered as the first treatment of choice as less tooth structure is required to be removed before placing them.
