A crown is a dental restoration that has multiple uses. It is a solution for more severe tooth problems caused by accidents, fractures, wear and tear, and decay. A crown fully surrounds the tooth and is most often used on teeth too damaged for a filling to restore correctly. They are also used to complete dental implant treatment. In all instances, the crown is custom made to look exactly like the tooth it is restoring. In this way, the tooth retains its natural size, shape, and function. The material used to make a crown is most often a full ceramic or, in some cases, a gold alloy.
Why Would I Need a Crown?
A tooth that has a large cavity or decay that can not be successfully restored by a filling can get a crown. Crowns can be used for a variety of things from restorative uses to aesthetic purposes. Some uses are: Protecting a tooth after a root canal, covering a dental implant, improving the shape and look of a misshapen tooth, improving your smile and confidence, strengthening a tooth that has been fractured or that is weakened, supporting a tooth that has a large filling, and supporting a denture.
