Do you have a cracked or worn tooth? Are you looking for a way to add structure to your tooth and improve the look of your bite? Dental crowns are a great option for patients who want a restoration to blend in seamlessly with their smile. We offer porcelain ceramic dental crowns to protect teeth and create a more even bite. Crowns can cover worn, broken, and crooked teeth. Wearing crowns made of porcelain ceramic creates a natural look that can blend in with natural teeth.

Benefits of Dental Crowns in Lititz, PA
There are many advantages to crown restorations:
- Durability: We often recommend dental crowns after root canal treatments if patients have severely worn or damaged teeth. Although a dental filling seals the inside of the tooth, a crown can add structure to the tooth and withstand biting forces to fully protect the tooth.
- Longevity: Crowns can last over fifteen years if patients care for their restorations. Patients can use a soft-bristled toothbrush and non-abrasive toothpaste to maintain the look and health of their dental crowns.
- Natural Appearance: Our dental crowns are made of porcelain ceramic, which reflects light similarly to the natural tooth enamel. Porcelain ceramic crowns are a great alternative to metal or gold crowns which do not blend in with the smile. Our porcelain ceramic crowns look natural and also feel natural once patients are accustomed to their restoration.
Dental Crown Treatment and Care
We customize dental crowns to fit each patient’s individual tooth. Whether you need a single crown or multiple crowns in different areas of the mouth, we can help. We prepare teeth for crowns by roughening the tooth surface. Preparing teeth for crowns ensures that they fit comfortably and securely. Our dental team takes dental impressions and sends them to a local lab. The lab technicians fabricate the crowns out of the porcelain ceramic. When the tooth crowns are complete, we place them on the affected teeth and polish them for a natural shine.
Patients should stick to a soft diet following their crown treatment. A soft diet helps patients get accustomed to their new crowns and how they fit in their smiles. Brushing and flossing between crowns also help prevent gum disease and tooth decay on any natural teeth.
