Porcelain Crowns
A crown (or cap) is a covering that encases the entire tooth surface restoring it to its original shape and size. A crown protects and strengthens the tooth structure giving the tooth a longer life than it would have if restored by fillings or other types of restorations.

There are two types of crowns used for cosmetic restorations, All Porcelain (tooth colored), and Porcelain Fused To Metal

All Porcelain
A very esthetically pleasing usually recommended for front teeth only. There is a high risk of fracturing this type of crown when used to restore back teeth.

Porcelain Fused To Metal
A metal based crown with porcelain baked to the outside to make it more Cosmetic. This type of crown is great for someone who wants a tooth colored crown but still wants durability. There is still a risk of fracturing these types of crowns but usually it is just the outside porcelain that chips off.
