As you get older, your teeth may become weaker and more susceptible to dental problems such as discoloration, cracking, decay, and more. If you are self conscious about certain damage to your teeth; crowns may offer the solution to get your confidence back so you can smile big, and smile often. Crowns typically come in a tooth colored porcelain, and are installed over the course of two to three visits. Your dentist will need to file the enamel on the tooth to reshape it (usually you will be given an anesthetic so there is no discomfort) and a mold will be taken so the crown can be created to fit the tooth and blend in with the surrounding teeth naturally.
