A porcelain crown (caps) that has been cemented into place essentially becomes the new outer surface for the tooth, restoring a tooth to its original shape. A crown can help to strengthen a tooth by way of being a hard outer shell that encases the tooth structure that lies within it.
For both of these reasons, porcelain crowns are routinely made for teeth that have broken, worn excessively, or else have had large portions destroyed by tooth decay. Porcelain crowns are made to match the shape, size, and color or your teeth giving you a natural, long-lasting beautiful smile.
A crown procedure usually requires two appointments. Your first appointment will include taking several highly accurate moulds (or impressions) that will be used to create your custom crown. A mold will also be used to create a temporary crown which will stay on your tooth for approximately two weeks until your new crown is fabricated by a dental laboratory.
