Porcelain crowns are used to cover a tooth that is to weak from decay to accept a filling, or has a large break or crack. A crown restores a tooth to its normal shape and size while protecting and strengthening it. This helps protect the weak tooth from breakage, which could lead to the loss of the tooth.
Crowns are also used to support dental bridges or dental implants. Porcelain crowns can restore stained or misshapen teeth for a wonderful smile.
