A crown (or cap) is a covering that encases the entire tooth surface restoring it to its original shape and size. Crowns are placed over the weakened tooth, providing strength and helping to prevent cracks or breaks. It protects and strengthens tooth structure that cannot be restored with fillings or other types of restorations. Porcelain crowns are very popular because they resemble natural teeth. They are highly durable and are made to perfectly match the shape, size and color of teeth giving patients a natural, long-lasting beautiful smile.
