A dental crown is a cap-like structure that restores the structure of damaged teeth. Dental crowns can come in many forms. A favorite type of dental crowns is Porcelain Crowns. Made from Porcelain material, it almost mimics the color of natural teeth making it hard to notice.

When would one require porcelain dental crowns?
A Porcelain dental crown functions and provides pleasing aesthetics just like other dental crowns. Its uniqueness lies in the fact that, its tooth-colored nature makes it virtually undetectable making it the most suitable form of dental restoration to cover damaged teeth.
A porcelain crown is required in the following scenarios:
- Teeth are often brittle and sensitive after a root canal procedure. It is customary to seal the tooth and cover the repaired ones with a restoration. A dental crown would be an ideal restoration.
- In situations when an onlay may not be the perfect solution for broken teeth, dental restorations such as crowns will be able to mend the damage.
- An old crown can be replaced with new ones. Porcelain crowns are recommended due to its natural appeal and aesthetics.
