What is a porcelain crown?
A porcelain crown is a synthetic cap, usually made of a material like porcelain, placed on the top of a tooth.
A porcelain crown is typically used to restore a tooth’s function and appearance following a restorative procedure such as a root canal. When decay in a tooth has become so advanced that large portions of the tooth must be removed, dental crowns are often used to restore the tooth.
Porcelain crowns are also used to attach bridges, cover implants, prevent a cracked tooth from becoming worse, or an existing filling is in jeopardy of becoming loose or dislocated. A dental crown can also serve an aesthetic use, and are applied when a discolored or stained tooth needs to be restored to its natural appearance
