Porcelain Dental Crowns

Our dentists at Salina Dental Arts offer porcelain dental crowns to cap your damaged teeth and restore their strength, function, and appearance. Porcelain mimics your tooth enamel, providing you with a restoration that looks completely natural, and works to protect your tooth from further damage. We invite you to call us at 785-823-2472 to make your appointment with Drs. Barth, Wittman, Prester and Heiman and to learn more about the benefits of porcelain dental crowns in Salina, Kansas.

A dental crown, or cap, is a restoration that can be used for a number of purposes. One of the most common uses of a dental crown is to restore a tooth that is significantly damaged or decayed. The crown is custom made to fit over the entire tooth, starting at the gumline, in order to restore the tooth to its original shape and size. Dental crowns can be made of gold, porcelain or porcelain fused to metal; porcelain crowns are popular because they match the natural color and appearance of your teeth. Our dentists will help you determine which type of dental crown is right for your smile.

Your smile may benefit from a crown if a tooth is damaged or decayed to the point that a dental filling will not provide a successful restoration. Crowns can also be used for a number of other restorative and aesthetic purposes, including to:

  • Protect a tooth following root canal treatment
  • Anchor and attach a dental bridge
  • Cover and complete a dental implant
  • Enhance the beauty of your smile
  • Improve a misshapen tooth
  • Strengthen a tooth that is fractured or weak
  • Support a large filling when little natural tooth structure remains

To find out whether a dental crown is right for you, we welcome you to contact us today!
