Dental crowns have become a very popular dental treatment option. They can perform many of the functions that you need to enjoy a strong and healthy smile. Sometimes, severely damaged or broken teeth cannot be repaired with filling materials and this is where crowns come in. Dental crowns and bridges can be used to repair badly damaged teeth.
A dental crown is a cap that is shaped like a tooth. A “cap” is placed over the tooth to cover it and restore its shape, size and strength. Dental crowns are also commonly used to improve the appearance of teeth. The crown fully encases the visible portion of a tooth after it has been cemented into place. In other words, everything above the gum line is covered by the crown. A crown can be cemented onto an existing tooth or an implant.
Dental crowns are extremely reliable for repairing even the most severe dental problems to offer a functional bite along with a complete smile.
Dental crowns are used for various reasons. They are used in situations where large cavities cannot be filled. Crowns are also an ideal replacement for missing teeth when a bridge is needed. Furthermore, dental crowns can be used as restoration after a root canal procedure or for covering cracked or weak teeth to strengthen them. It is also interesting to know that dental crowns can be used for cosmetic reasons to enhance the appearance of your smile.
