Porcelain crowns are only used on a severely-deficient or heavily-restored tooth.  Tooth structure must be removed from all around the tooth in order for porcelain to fit properly, but the result can be very lifelike!

Patient testimonials

Kia ora Clarence,

Thank you so much. I can't say that enough. For the first time in 8 years I have been able to smile without being self conscious of how awful my teeth look. In fact my teeth look more and more beautiful every time I look at them (I can't move away from the mirror haha!) and I am just so happy.

You're meticulous, brilliant at what you do and provide such a beautiful service.
