Different dental problems require different treatments, and this is a known fact. Therefore, based on the treatment you receive, you may need to:
- Get extra physical support for the affected tooth;
- Have the affected tooth restored to the initial shape and size;
- Transform the treated tooth completely.
In any of the above-mentioned situations, getting a dental crown is a wise decision. Basically, dental crowns (also referred to as "caps") cover the entire tooth, unlike fillings which only fill the interior space, or outlays and inlays which cover the chewing surface of the tooth. In a nutshell, when you get dental caps you will still have a part of your tooth, but it will be rebuilt in such a way that it will resemble the exterior.
Porcelain crowns are widely used nowadays, mainly because they look very natural and they last in the long run. Nonetheless, it is highly recommended to use porcelain caps only after the tooth has been treated properly, not for cosmetic purposes only.
