Tooth crowns are a strong and protective solution for teeth with severe structural damage or very large metal fillings. They can also be used after a root canal or as the tooth portion of an implant. A crown, sometimes called tooth caps, completely covers and strengthens the damaged tooth while ensuring that it looks and feels completely natural. In most cases, we can use pure porcelain, even on molars.
How is that possible? New porcelain materials and bonding technology let us place beautiful, natural-looking crowns that can withstand chewing forces that older materials could not.
