Dental porcelain can be sculpted to closely replicate the look of natural tooth enamel while providing desirable strength and resilience. Porcelain dental crowns are an excellent choice when recreating the form and function of a damaged tooth because a crown basically replaces the entire external portion of the tooth down to the gum level. Crowns are not limited to simply replacing the original tooth but can be designed to create an even better aesthetic appearance.
Porcelain dental crowns are widely used to restore:
- Weak teeth after they undergo root canal therapy
- Severely decayed teeth
- Cracked teeth
- Worn down or broken teeth caused by bruxism (teeth grinding) or dental erosion
- Discolored teeth
