Crowns & Bridges


Usually made of porcelain, a crown covers your tooth entirely, fitting snugly at the gum line to protect the remaining healthy portion of your natural tooth. The crown allows us to preserve the tooth, restoring it to fully functional strength. It will also restore the appearance of your teeth and face. A crown will help keep your jaw and bite properly aligned, and it will also prevent other teeth from shifting and becoming misaligned.

In addition to their strength and stability, many patients choose porcelain crowns for their cosmetically pleasing natural appearance. Porcelain crowns come in many color gradations, allowing us to choose a shade that is closely matched to the color of your natural teeth.

At Dr. Starkman's office we have the CEREC machine that allows us to do this in one visit.
