A dental crown, (also known as a cap) is a covering on a damaged tooth that encases the whole tooth surface. This restores it to be similar to its original size and shape. A crown can protect and strengthen a tooth that can no longer be fixed with a filling. There are many types of dental crowns but the most common are porcelain crowns. The latest style of porcelain crowns and durable, tooth coloured and will last many years.
The Main Reasons For Crowns Are
- Cracked or broken teeth
- Cosmetic improvement
- Solution for decaying teeth
- Tooth decay is too large for fillings
- As part of a root canal procedure
Porcelain crowns have become quite a common part of a smile makeover or for cosmetic dentistry. When use for this purpose they can even out a smile, fill gaps, and are easily whitened. Modern dental implants are essentially a dental crown, mounted on a titanium root that is attached to the jawbone.
