A crown is a porcelain restoration that covers the whole tooth. When a tooth is cracked, broken, or significantly decayed, a crown returns your tooth to its normal appearance, function, and prevents any breaking in the future. If kept clean, crown last many years. Crowns are often placed on front teeth to enhance a a persons smile.
