Strong, Beautiful Porcelain Crowns

Comprehensive Restorations in Colorado Springs

All of our dental crowns are made from extremely durable porcelain materials. Dr. Borden uses two types of porcelain crowns: an ultra-strong porcelain used on posterior teeth, and a more cosmetic but strong porcelain for anterior teeth.

Certain types of crowns can bond directly to the underlying tooth, minimizing leakage that can occur around the crown margin.

{PJ} Dental CrownsWhen Is a Crown Necessary?

Crowns are used to protect teeth that are breaking down. Dr. Borden typically suggests them in circumstances such as:

  • Large, aging fillings
  • Cracked teeth
  • Teeth treated with a root canal

The Crown Process

Our crown treatments take two appointments. The first involves a preparation visit where Dr. Borden shapes the tooth and takes an impression. We work with a trusted dental lab right here in town that makes the permanent crown from this impression.

In two weeks, you will return to our office for us to permanently bond the crown into place. Most crown treatments are at least partially covered by dental insurance.

Your final crown will blend in with your smile, since it is made to match your surrounding teeth.

If you are struggling with broken down teeth and worn out fillings, contact us today to discuss having a custom porcelain crown made.
