Porcelain dental crowns can restore your damaged tooth to its original size, shape, and appearance, and protect it against further damage.  To learn more about porcelain dental crowns in San Jose, California, and schedule your appointment with Drs. Navdeep Aulakh, Parin Patel, Kevin Hashemi, Heidi Lee, Nipa Shetha, and Victoria Furman, please call AZ Dental at 408-437-1111.

While dental crowns are available in several types of materials, porcelain crowns are by far the most popular type.  Porcelain closely mimics the appearance and durability of tooth enamel, and these restorations are carefully designed to match the shape, size, and color of your teeth, allowing you to enjoy a beautiful, long-lasting result.

Our dentists may recommend a crown if you have one or more of the following problems:

  • Broken or fractured teeth
  • Decayed teeth
  • Fractured fillings
  • Large fillings
  • Teeth that have undergone a root canal

Crowns may also be recommended for cosmetic enhancement.

It normally requires to appointments to complete a dental crown.  During your first appointment, we will take impressions to create your custom crown.  We will also clean and shape your tooth, and create and place a temporary crown, which will remain on your tooth until your custom crown is completed.

When you return for your second appointment, our dentists will remove the temporary crown and clean the tooth.  We will then place your custom crown, check it to ensure an accurate fit, and cement it in place.

We invite you to call our office today to learn more about porcelain dental crowns.
