Dental crowns have been used for years to strengthen and protect weak, worn, or damaged teeth. A crown is a porcelain restoration that completely covers your tooth, giving it extra strength and durability for biting and chewing. Crowns can be used to restore worn teeth or repair chipped, cracked, or broken teeth to restore their usefulness. In the process, crowns shield teeth from future breakage and decay and reduce tooth sensitivity.
Cosmetically, crowns can conceal tooth flaws and improve your smile’s appearance. By covering imperfections like chips, stains, and cracks or altering the size and shape of irregular teeth, crowns can make your teeth whiter, more symmetrical, and more aesthetically pleasing.
