Teeth that are naturally crooked, or have experienced fractures, decay, or wear and tear create problems for oral hygiene and eating. They also reduce the effectiveness of your smile. These problems can often be overcome using porcelain crowns; once any needed procedures have been performed. Porcelain crowns are used to cover, or replace the entire external portion of the tooth, all the way to the gum-line. Porcelain crowns are a great choice for recreating the function and form of a damaged tooth. Enamel caps sculpted from porcelain offer the needed strength and the desired resilience of tooth enamel.
