Porcelain Crowns

Erase years of wear and tear with porcelain crowns! Woodbridge dentist Dr. Strickland removes any existing decay and then uses a tooth-like crown made of porcelain to restore your tooth. Crowns are also used to restore chipped teeth, broken teeth, gaps in teeth and other damage. Porcelain crowns mimic natural-looking teeth in shape and color, so no one will even know you’ve had treatment; they’ll just see your beautiful smile.

Q: What is a crown and why do I need one?

A: If Dr. Strickland has recommended a dental crown to you, it is likely either to correct a broken tooth or to repair a tooth that has deteriorated due to decay. The decay in your tooth eats away healthy tooth structure much like rust eats away at metal. If not removed, decay will deteriorate the tooth to the point where extraction is the only viable treatment option. Sometimes after decay is removed, there is healthy tooth structure left, but not much of it. A crown can then be placed, restoring the look and function of your tooth while allowing you to keep your natural, underlying tooth structure. Most dental crowns are precision-milled porcelain or gold and are individually customized for each application in each patient, giving you a natural, long lasting smile.
