dental-crown

A dental crown is a tooth-shaped “cap” that is placed over a tooth — to cover the tooth to restore its shape and size, strength, and improve its appearance.

The crowns, when cemented into place, fully encase the entire visible portion of a tooth that lies at and above the gum line.

TYPES OF DENTAL CROWN

dental-crown-types

Ceramic

These are used for restoring front teeth, and are popular in this area for their ability to blend with your natural tooth colour. The crown is made of a porcelain-based material.

Porcelain-fused to metal

This crown provides a stronger bond than regular porcelain because it is connected to a metal structure. It’s also extremely durable.

Base metal alloys

This crown is made up of non-noble metals that are highly resistant to corrosion, and make for a very strong crown. It also requires the least amount of healthy tooth to be removed prior to fitting.

When is the dental crown needed?

  1. To protect a weak tooth (for instance, from decay) from breaking or to hold together parts of a cracked tooth
  2. To restore an already broken tooth or a tooth that has been severely worn down
  3. To cover and support a tooth with a large filling when there isn’t a lot of tooth left
  4. To hold a dental bridge in place
  5. To cover misshapen or severely discoloured teeth
  6. To cover a dental implant
  7. To make a cosmetic modification
