Porcelain crowns are a frequently used restorative treatment, and they are recommended for a number of situations. They can be used to restore and protect severely decayed or damaged teeth as well as to enhance your smile from previous metal-based restorations. Even though under normal circumstances teeth are very strong, sometimes something will happen that causes a tooth to become weakened or cracked. This could happen in an accident, while eating nuts, or even while prying things open with your teeth. In this state, the tooth is subject to further damage which can result in ultimately losing the tooth if not treated in time. By having a crown placed over the damaged tooth, you will save it and preserve your beautiful smile.
