Do teeth with porcelain crowns still need deep tooth cleaning?

In brief: Yes

A porcelain crown covers the exposed are of the tooth.
A deep tooth cleaning goes beyond the crown and below the gum onto root surface.

In brief: Yes

A tooth with a crown can become decayed, get gingivitis, periodontitis, or any other dental problem that an uncrowned tooth can develop.
You should care for a crowned tooth the same as your other teeth with your homecare as well as regular visits to your dentist and hygienist. With proper care, it can last a long time and do as well as the rest of your teeth.
