A dental crown is a restoration that covers the entire tooth surface, to restore it to its original or ideal shape and size. Crowns help to protect and strengthen a tooth that is damaged or decayed when fillings or other types of restorations cannot be used.

Although crowns can be made of different materials, such as gold and other metals, the most popular type of crown is made of porcelain. Porcelain crowns are the primary choice for most patients because porcelain is exceptionally durable and can be manufactured to match the shape, size, and color of your teeth. Crowns are typically used to improve the appearance and function of a single tooth, while a bridge (a combination of crowns and artificial teeth) is used to improve the form and function of a series of teeth. This means that you will be able to enjoy a beautiful, natural-looking, and long-lasting smile.

Porcelain crowns are ideal for functional or cosmetic enhancement of your smile and can help if you have:

  • Broken, cracked, or fractured teeth
  • Stained, darkened, or discolored teeth
  • Decayed or damaged teeth
  • Weakened tooth enamel
  • Severe enamel erosion
  • Broken or cracked fillings
  • Large fillings
  • A tooth with a large root canal
