A crown is a tooth restoration that covers and protects damaged teeth. Crowns are placed when a tooth has a large worn out filling or a large cavity, after a root canal, or to protect a cracked tooth. A crown protects and strengthens the tooth.
A crown also can be used for cosmetic purposes, Porcelain crowns are beautiful and natural looking. Porcelain is used inside and outside to eliminate the dark line at the edge of the gum that shows when you have a metal based crown. The porcelain maintains a translucency that makes it hard to tell from a natural teeth.
