A porcelain crown is a type of dental restoration which completely caps or encircles a tooth or dental implant. Crowns are often needed when a large cavity threatens the ongoing health of a tooth. Often times, a tooth that has undergone rootcanal therapy will need to be restored with a crown.
All of your teeth play an important role in speaking, chewing, and maintaining proper alignment of your other teeth. Missing teeth should be replaced to maintain proper function of your mouth. Fortunately, there are several options for correcting tooth loss. Porcelain bridges, partial dentures and implants can replace lost teeth.
