Dental crowns are used as a way to restore the look and function of a tooth that has been damaged as a result of decay, old restorations, or physical breaking. A crown protects and strengthens tooth structure that cannot be restored with fillings or other types of restorations so that your teeth will last as long as possible.
Although there are several types of crowns, porcelain (tooth coloured crown) are the most popular, because they resemble your natural teeth. They are highly durable and will last many years. Porcelain crowns are made to match the shape, size, and colour or your teeth giving you a natural, long-lasting beautiful smile.
