Dr. Julia Gorelik and our team in Charlotte, North Carolina are pleased to offer custom-crafted porcelain dental crowns for our patients seeking to replace damaged teeth. Whether you need to strengthen your pearly whites or mask cosmetic flaws, our metal-free porcelain crowns are ideal for the task. They appear natural while relieving tooth pain arising from broken or fractured teeth, infected tooth pulp, or heavy decay.  So, let’s take a look at what our metal-free crowns do for you:

Benefits of Metal-free Crowns

  • Avoiding mercury in metal crowns protects you from its negative effects on the body.
  • Metal-free crowns reduce or eliminate the pain sensitivity a tooth may experience when eating hot or cold foods.
  • Metal-free porcelain crowns look like your tooth as the color is translucent like a natural tooth.
  • Porcelain crowns are fracture resistant so the tooth will appear flawless during its lifetime.

Dental Crowns for Restoration 

  • If you have a tooth which has suffered severe tooth decay, a dental crown can support and strengthen the tooth.
  • If you have had a root canal to save a tooth, a dental crown will restore the tooth to function and appear normal.
  • If you have a tooth that has been badly cracked or broken, a crown can cap it off and strengthen it so it can function normally again.
  • If you have a tooth which has been worn, for example, due to bruxism (grinding/clenching) a cap is a good solution.
  • If you need a dental bridge to restore missing teeth, a crown can anchor the bridge.

Dental Crowns for Cosmetic Enhancement

  • Fixes a misshapen tooth or a tooth that needs height or width adjustment.
  • Fixes discolored teeth that need masking.
  • Ideal for covering a dental implant.
