Porcelain Crowns

 

 

Crowns serve a very important function in saving  broken-down or compromised teeth and can eliminate chewing and cold sensitivity in teeth that have cracks. 

 

A very common situation for a crown presents when a tooth has had a large filling in the past and, through wear and tear, a crack develops in the surrounding tooth structure, and either the tooth breaks or becomes painful to chew on.

 

A porcelain crown encircles the tooth, restoring form and strength to a weakened tooth, while at the same time providing a very natural, esthetic restoration that will serve for many years.
