Crowns cover (or “cap) a tooth that has been damaged to protect it from further harm and to restore the natural aesthetic appearance of a healthy tooth.
If you have received root canal treatment, have a large filling, or perhaps have teeth that miscoloured, misshapen or misaligned, you may qualify as a candidate for a crown.
In modern dentistry porcelain has become the more popular choiceof material from which to make a crown due to its durability and ability to blend seamlessly with the rest of your natural teeth.
If you have a crown it’s important to take meticulous care of your teeth through practicing proper horal hygiene. It’s also a wise idea to refrain from biting down on hard objects or using your teeth to open or cut things.
