A crown, sometimes known as dental cap, is a type of dental restoration which completely caps or encircles a tooth or dental implant. Crowns are often needed when a large cavity threatens the ongoing health of a tooth.
A tooth crown or a tooth cap is a porcelain cap made either from pure ceramic or a metalo-ceramic composite and it comes on top of a tooth. It is carefully placed over a natural tooth or dental implant.
A dental crown may be needed to protect a weak tooth from breaking or to hold together parts of a cracked tooth. It also allows us to restore an already broken tooth or a tooth that has been severely worn down.
However, a dental crown is also very useful to hold a dental bridge in place and to cover misshaped or severely discoloured teeth or a dental implant Still, that’s not all. Ever more often, crowns are also used for aesthetic purposes to make a cosmetic modification.
