Dental crowns, also known as caps, are used to restore teeth that are imperfect. A crown is designed to completely enclose a natural tooth so that you can enjoy all the benefits of a healthy, functional, and beautiful smile once again. Although there are several types of crowns, porcelain (tooth colored crown) are the most popular, because they resemble your natural teeth. They are highly durable and will last many years, but like most dental restorations, they may eventually need to be replaced. Porcelain crowns are made to match the shape, size, and color or your teeth giving you a natural, long-lasting beautiful smile.
