What Do Crowns Do?
Dental crowns restore strength and alleviate pain by shielding the entire surface area of the tooth. By supporting a damaged tooth with a dental fixture fitted specifically for you, Dr. Khavari can improve both the look and function of your teeth while preventing further damage in the future.
Dr. Khavari may recommend crowns for the protection and aesthetic enhancement of teeth that are:
- Broken, chipped or cracked
- Misshapen or discolored
- Impacted by large fillings
- Worn down by bite irregularities
- Weakened by severe decay or infection
Dental crowns are also used:
- As support for a replacement tooth in a dental bridge
- As the replacement tooth atop a dental implant
- To restore a tooth after a root canal

- All-porcelain crowns

Benefits of Porcelain Crowns
While your grandparents might not have had a choice other than gold or metal amalgam crowns, Dr. Khavari is proud to offer a more aesthetically pleasing alternative with dental ceramic.
Porcelain crowns provide several benefits over traditional crowns, such as:
- Light passes through ceramic well, giving your smile a natural radiance
- No lost stability or strength because of temperature changes in the mouth
- Color can be adjusted to match the shade of your natural teeth
- An unattractive gray line won’t be exposed at the gum line if your gum tissue recedes
By practicing proper dental hygiene and completing regularly scheduled checkups with Dr. Khavari, you should be able to enjoy many years of good dental health and a beautiful smile with a porcelain dental crown.
