What are Porcelain Crowns?

Crowns are cosmetic restoration used to strengthen a tooth or improve its shape. Crowns are most often used for teeth that are broken, worn, or partially destroyed by tooth decay. Dental crowns are a long-lasting restoration for a tooth that needs complete coverage or protection due to decay or in danger of being damaged or broken: it covers the entire tooth. It can be made of various materials, including porcelain, which has the most natural appearance in the mouth.

Some porcelain crowns rely on a metal infrastructure for the strength to provide tooth protection. With today’s technology, it’s now possible to have the power of metal in a more natural and undetectable all-porcelain metal-free crown.

Dental crowns are one of the essential restorations we offer. A crown can save a broken or decayed tooth by holding it together & protecting it from further damage. However, a dental crown is an excellent way to cover discolored or poorly shaped teeth or cover a dental implant. A crown can make your tooth stronger & improve its appearance.
