Porcelain crowns correct both functional and aesthetic oral problems. These can be applied to teeth to make an individual tooth stronger and provide durability to damaged teeth. Overtime and with age, teeth can become weak, and people can experience pain. Porcelain crowns are a great fit when the root of the tooth is still strong and in-tact, but the actual tooth is weak, as the crown will literally cover the existing tooth. This crown supports the structure of the tooth and creates a stronger and more beautiful aesthetic
