What Are Porcelain Crowns?
A crown (or cap) is a covering that encases the entire tooth surface restoring it to its original shape and size. A crown protects and strengthens tooth structure that we cannot restore with fillings or other types of restorations.
Although there are several crowns, tooth-colored crowns are the most popular because they resemble your natural teeth. They are highly durable and will last many years, but they may eventually need replacing like most dental restorations. Porcelain crowns are made to match the shape, size, and color of your teeth, giving you a natural, long-lasting beautiful smile.
We use porcelain to make crowns to give each patient a beautiful, natural-appearing restoration that won’t draw any unwanted attention. Having a pearly white sheen, porcelain looks almost exactly like our natural tooth enamel.
