The main purpose of a crown is to cover a damaged tooth, to provide strength, improve appearance and alignment in the mouth. Crowns for teeth can sometimes include Porcelain or metal in their substucture.
Crowns will become necessary to restore a tooth back to its natural beauty and full function when a substantial amount of that tooth structure has been lost or damaged due to breakage, decay, or a large old filling that has failed.
The all-ceramic, all porcelain crowns are typically more aesthetic and never develop any ugly black line as those seen in the metal margins of porcelain fused to metal (PFM ) crowns.
Ceramic restorations can be made thinner, requiring less tooth reduction and find their application in cases such as porcelain veneers.
