Porcelain crowns – also commonly called “caps” – are an excellent way to repair and strengthen badly damaged teeth. Like veneers, they can dramatically improve the appearance of your teeth; however, unlike veneers, they cover the entire surface area of the tooth and can prevent weaker teeth from cracking or breaking. By strengthening these vulnerable teeth, they can greatly reduce or eliminate pain, sensitivity, and difficulty with chewing and speaking. Crowns are also commonly used to keep large fillings in place. Whatever their function, they’ll give you a more attractive and confident smile!
