A porcelain crown is a type of dental restoration that covers the entire tooth surface. It is made of porcelain, a type of ceramic that is strong and resistant to wear. Porcelain crowns are used to restore the function and appearance of teeth that are damaged or decayed.
An impression of the tooth is first taken before creating a porcelain crown. This impression is then used to make a model of the tooth. A crown can be made from metal, porcelain-fused-to-metal, resin, or ceramic.
A dental crown is used to:
-Restore a cracked tooth
-Preserve a tooth that has undergone root canal therapy
-Cover a tooth that is misshapen or seriously discolored
-Support a dental bridge
Porcelain crowns are available in different colors and can be matched to the color of the existing teeth. They come in a variety of shapes and sizes as well.
Porcelain crowns are usually used to restore the front teeth. They are also used to restore the back teeth if the damage is not too severe.
