A dental crown is a tooth shaped cap that is placed over the tooth to cover the tooth in order to restore its shape and strength and improve its appearance. A dental crown might be a good option for you if you suffer from the following conditions:

  • Cracked tooth: A dental crown will protect it from decaying or from breaking.
  • Severely worn out tooth: A dental crown will protect the tooth from increased wear.
  • When not much tooth is left: A dental crown covers the tooth.
  • A crown will hold a dental bridge in the right place.
  • A crown is used to improve the appearance of a tooth or cover a dental implant.

A crown must be placed on a tooth or implant with a long dental root that will hold the gums and bone firmly. This root acts as pillar of the renovation. If the root is too short, the restoration might not be successful. Healthy gums are also significant as they provide cover to the union of crown and tooth. If they are not strong enough then this would lead to functional and aesthetic problems. The last element required is a sufficient number of teeth to retain the crown on top of it.

If you do not meet these conditions, you might be a candidate for a dental implant. Healthy gums can be restored if they are treated with specialized cleaning procedures. If there is not enough tooth, it can be reconstructed with posts and core.
A crown can last a lifetime with the proper care. It’s important to know the best materials for dental crowns. Crowns are made from gold, alloy, stainless steel, porcelain fused to metal, ceramic, resin or zirconia.
