CROWNS, ALSO KNOWN AS CAPS, ARE A GOOD SOLUTION WHEN THE SURFACE OF TEETH GETS DAMAGED.
Crowns are usually made up of porcelain. When a tooth’s surface gets badly fractured, it's restored with a dental filling which is cemented above the old tooth. This restoration is referred to as a crown.
Damage can come to teeth in many forms - chips, cracks, and decay to name a few. While fillings may improve these damages, crowns rebuild the teeth to their original shape and size. By being secure and natural in appearance, crowns offer both oral health and cosmetic benefits.
DENTAL CROWNS COME IN DIFFERENT FORMS.
Dental crowns are of different types based on their composition of materials:
Porcelain or ceramic crowns
Stainless steel crowns
The placing of a ceramic crown over a damaged tooth or in restoring a dental implant is simple enough. And doing so helps to prevent future tooth fractures. But the variables involved in the process will be different for each patient depending on the number of dental crowns and materials used.
