Crowns

Crowns or “caps” are traditional and commonly used restorations in dentistry today. Because the enamel has to be completely removed for a crown or “cap,” the stronger and more conservative onlay or porcelain veneer restoration is generally the treatment of choice whenever possible. However, when teeth are badly broken, extensively decayed, or simply in need of replacing existing caps, crowns are the treatment of choice. Crowns can be made of all porcelain, porcelain fused to gold, porcelain fused to zirconium, or all gold. The best crown material is often determined by an individual’s bite and aesthetic considerations. All of our crown work is backed by our Ten-Year World-Class Warranty.

Dr. Hollar has extensive training and experience in crown placement and has successfully placed thousands of these restorations since 1981. Like our Porcelain Veneers, these restorations are very durable and resistant to stain. To view more examples of our work, please visit our photo galleries.
