Porcelain Crowns (Caps)

What’s Involved Getting Porcelain Crowns

Crowns are a common restoration provided by a cosmetic dentist or a general practice dentist. Your dentist may recommend that you get a porcelain crown if one of your front teeth is cracked, badly chipped or has stains that cannot be whitened. A porcelain crown also functions as a restoration after you have had a large filling or root canal therapy. Porcelain crowns are similar to veneers because they are both customized to the shape, color and size of your natural teeth. However, veneers are strictly cosmetic. The process of getting a porcelain crown is simple and pain-free.
