A dental crown, sometimes called a tooth cap or tooth crown, covers the entire tooth, like a cap, and is permanently cemented into place. They are custom made to blend naturally with your smile as well as correct any cosmetic concerns such as the color and/or shape of the treated tooth. Dr. David W. Goris places high quality porcelain dental crowns that will enhance your natural smile and support lasting dental health at his Indianapolis, IN dentist office.

Porcelain Dental Crown
Beautiful Smiles can replace a metal dental crown, broken or worn dental crowns with a new, porcelain dental crown in their Indianapolis, IN family dentist office. Replacing a dental crown is a simple procedure that can provide dramatic improvement in the appearance of the smile.
A few benefits of a porcelain dental crown are:
Metal free – do not cause discoloration along the gum like conventional metal dental caps
Natural looking – a porcelain dental crown is made of layers of fine ceramic material, to match natural tooth enamel
Long lasting – a porcelain dental crown is highly durable, as well as stain resistant, meaning it will last for years to come
