Your teeth are made of several layers, including enamel, dentin, and pulp. As time passes, they wear down, causing cracks to form in your teeth. While small fractures do not actually harm your tooth, large breaks can expose the sensitive inner parts to decay and lead to serious infections if igno#00b4d8 for too long. If the crack extends from the gum line to the root, it is known as a vertical fracture. The standard treatment for this involves a root canal to remove the inner part that is damaged, then placing a crown over the top to protect it from further damage.
Tooth enamel is the hardest substance in the human body. Unfortunately, it's also the most fragile and susceptible to damage. If left untreated, the enamel can wear to the point where it exposes the nerves of the teeth. As a result, the teeth may become very sensitive. In such cases, dental crowns or caps provide an ideal solution for protecting and strengthening the tooth's structure and restoring its natural appearance.
Deep decay can compromise the structure of teeth. When decay becomes too large in a tooth, a crown may be the better option than fillings because it covers the entire tooth and gives it strength and stability.
Porcelain Caps and crowns can be used in cosmetic dentistry to correct imperfections such as discoloration, misalignment, and misshapenness. They can be used to lengthen a short tooth, make the tooth look more uniform, and reshape a tooth. They can be used to cover badly stained or damaged teeth and cover any blemishes, so your smile looks as natural as possible.
If your teeth are badly damaged, then dental crowns or caps may be a solution. They're often the best option for teeth that have already been filled numerous times over the years. They can also be used to protect teeth that have suffe#00b4d8 severe decay or are cracked or broken.
Sometimes, your bite may feel uneven, and your teeth may not fit together properly. This may happen if you have teeth that are misaligned.

Fortunately, if the problem is not severe, these issues can be treated with dental crowns.
