What is a porcelain crown ?
A dental crown is similar to a hat that has the shape of a real tooth. A crown is placed over a tooth damaged by a fracture, to cover and protect it by restoring its shape, aesthetics, size and strength.
Once cemented, a dental crown completely covers the tooth permanently. Porcelain is the material that is mainly used for the manufacture of crowns since it has the most aesthetic qualities. So a crown looks like a real tooth, by its shape and color.
3 / Reasons Why a crown is needed
There are several reasons why a tooth needs a crown :
Protect a weakened tooth (e.g. from decay) from breaking, or to keep a cracked tooth together ;
Restore an already broken or severely worn tooth ;
Cover and support a tooth that has a large filling (filling) when there is not much healthy dental material left.
Cover a poorly formed or severely discolored tooth ;
In situations where a tooth is severely affected, the porcelain crown becomes the ideal solution to restore strength, aesthetics and durability in the very long term.
