All Porcelain Dental Crowns
A crown (or cap) is a tooth-shaped covering that covers the entire tooth surface in order to restore its original shape and size, or to improve its appearance. Whereas a filling restores only part of a tooth, a crown can restore the structure of a much larger portion of tooth.
Although crowns can be made from several different materials, porcelain is the most popular choice because it is extremely natural-looking and luminous. Porcelain crowns are highly durable and will last for many years but, as with most dental restorations, they may eventually require repair or replacement.
Reasons for crowns:
- To fix broken, fractured, or decayed teeth
- For cosmetic enhancement
- To repair fractured fillings
- For large fillings
