Porcelain Crowns (Caps)

A crown (or cap) is a covering that encases the entire tooth surface restoring it to its original shape and size. A crown protects and strengthens tooth structure that cannot be restored with fillings or other types of restorations.

Although there are several types of dental crowns, porcelain (tooth colored crown) is the most popular, because they resemble your natural teeth. They are highly durable and will last many years, but like most dental restorations, they may eventually need to be replaced. Porcelain crowns are made to match the shape, size, and color or your teeth giving you a natural, long-lasting beautiful smile.

Reasons for crowns:

  • Broken or Chipped teeth
  • Cosmetic enhancement
  • Decayed teeth
  • Fractured fillings
  • Large fillings
  • Tooth has a root canal

What does getting a crown involve?

A crown procedure usually typically requires two appointments, however at Rockhouse Dental, we specialize in one visit porcelain crowns in Rexburg ID.

While the tooth is numb, the dentist will prepare the tooth by removing any decay and shaping the surface to properly fit the crown. Once these details are accomplished, we will take several images of your tooth which will be used to create your custom crown, and ensure an accurate fit. After your crown is created, it will be carefully placed to ensure the spacing and bite are accurate. You will be given care instructions and encouraged to have regular dental visits to check your new crown.

If you have any questions, concerns, or would like to schedule an appointment, please contact us today. All of us at Rockhouse Dentistry look forward to providing you with the personal care you deserve and expect from a provider of porcelain dental crowns in Rexburg.
