It covers, protects, and restores the shape of the visible portion of your teeth. Crowns prove to be an effective solution when tooth fillings fail. It restores your smile and other dental functionalities like chewing, speaking, and bite. Crowns are made of porcelain, ceramic, and resins, which can last long if you take proper care of it. Maintaining your regular oral hygiene is enough to ensure your crown is in its best shape and state.
