Crowns Overview

Permanent dental crowns are dental restorations that are designed to fit over teeth so that they appear to be natural teeth. When the permanent crowns are cemented, they encase the entire teeth. The purpose of permanent crowns is to make the teeth stronger or improve the way they look.

Types of Dental Crowns

Different types of dental crowns include porcelain and porcelain-fused-to-metal. Porcelain dental crowns are sculpted to closely replicate the look of natural tooth enamel, while providing strength and resilience. Porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns are also very strong and can produce pleasing aesthetics. 

Benefits of Crowns

A permanent crown will do you and your smile a world of good. A crown can improve the appearance of your smile. It can instantly correct chips, discoloration, crookedness, cracks, fractures, and much more. A dental crown can also improve tooth function. It can withstand biting and chewing forces well.
