Porcelain crowns are restorations, but they can be used for cosmetic enhancement too. If you have a tooth that's bothering you because it
looks offbeat, a porcelain crown can reshape it. And if you're unhappy with
the color of your teeth, porcelain crowns will effectively hide the discoloration and give you a beautiful white smile.
Crowns are also a great solution for attaching bridges and
fractured teeth to their original shapes and sizes. You'll most likely need a crown if a tooth breaks down and a filling
won't be enough to fix it. If your tooth cracks, a crown will seal the
crevices and hold the tooth together so the damage doesn't worsen. If
you have a tooth that's not strong enough to support a large filling, a
crown can correct that too.
