Porcelain & Lava™ Crowns

Restore the Function of Your Natural Teeth

Do you have cracked, broken or decaying teeth? If you are like millions of Americans, your teeth may benefit dramatically from a porcelain crown. There is good news! If your teeth are chipped, worn down or decayed due to an injury, gum disease or simply due to aging, there are cosmetic dental procedures available. These procedures can not only restore the function of your natural teeth, but that can deliver amazing esthetic results and give you the beautiful smile that you deserve.

Why You Need a Porcelain or Lava™ Crown

Teeth have a natural tendency to be worn down due to everyday wear and tear. They can also show signs of decay and breakage when injuries occur. Fortunately, many of the problems associated with cracked and broken tooth structures can be restored through the use of crowns. Dental crowns are used to hold parts of a cracked tooth together. They are also used to protect a weak tooth from decay and can be used to restore a tooth that has been worn down or broken.

Over time, metal restorations can leave a dark ridge where the gums recede.

With Lava zirconia, your restoration retains its original beauty for years.

While permanent crowns can be crafted out of stainless steel, gold or another alloy, resin, porcelain fused to metal or porcelain, all-porcelain or ceramic crowns are recognized as the option of choice. Porcelain crowns provide an excellent, more natural-looking color than any other type of crown on the market, and they are more appropriate for people that have metal allergies.

Lava™ Zirconia Crowns

At Advanced Dentistry & Implant Center, we are proud to offer Lava™ crowns because they truly deliver when it comes to providing strength, endurance and outstanding esthetic qualities. With the Lava system, the crown can be custom colored to match your teeth, creating a restoration that provides a natural look, excellent strength, and endurance.

Some of the advantages of the Lava™ crown include:

  • Remarkable strength
  • Outstanding fit
  • Can be cemented
  • Provides a beautiful appearance
  • Biocompatibility
  • Lasts a long time
  • Tooth-colored material
  • Metal- and mercury-free
  • Clinical studies have not shown any allergic reactions

Porcelain crowns can re-establish the original function of a tooth, especially in situations where decay has destroyed the majority of the original tooth, or when the person has been injured. Perhaps one of the greatest benefits of porcelain crowns is that they can not only replicate the original tooth in function and appearance, but often they can look even better than the original.
