You have a misshapen or severely decayed front tooth, leaving you hesitant to smile genuinely or laugh sincerely. Healthy, white teeth make for confident, beautiful smiles; but significant decay and discoloration, as well as chips, cracks, breaks, or even missing teeth can keep us hiding in the shadows.
Dr. Fitzgerald recommends porcelain crowns to protect teeth from additional damage and to mask dental blemishes. Porcelain crowns can be exactly matched to the color of your teeth, creating a natural-looking, seamless smile solution for both esthetics and fortification.
Crowns are Placed:
- To brace a tooth weakened by cracks or breaks (often resulting from decay)
- To restore an already broken tooth
- To cap a tooth with a large filling and significant tooth loss
- To secure a dental bridge
- To cover misshapen or discolored teeth
- To finish a dental implant

But it is a rare person who wants to walk around with a gold or silver front tooth, and the amalgamation crowns often appear gray and eventually reveal a dark line at the gum line. However, porcelain crowns are strong restorations that blend flawlessly with your natural teeth, and most dentists place porcelain crowns on any visible teeth.
