Heavily damaged teeth can be covered with natural-looking porcelain crowns, which replace more of a natural tooth’s structure than porcelain veneers. Crowns are dental restorations that protect damaged, cracked or broken teeth. Dental crowns—often referred to as caps—sit over the entire part of the tooth that lies above the gum line.
Besides restoring and protecting damaged teeth, dental crowns have many other uses in dentistry, from restorative to cosmetic treatments:
Dental crowns are designed to be cosmetically appealing and used to restore proper occlusion and function. They are fully customizable and made of various materials, including porcelain and metals. Crowns are created to match the color, height, texture, and overall look of your natural teeth.
