A dental crown may be referred to as a false tooth or replacement tooth for its use in restoring missing teeth. Bridges are also the same but it replaces one or more missing teeth. It is like a cap and placed over a tooth by covering the tooth to restore its shape and size, strength, and to improve its appearance and function. It can be made from a variety of materials, including zirconium, gold, or porcelain. The best pick of material for your crown is decided to take into consideration the location of the tooth in need of the crown, the shade of the tooth, and the position of your gum tissue just to name a few factors. Dental crowns may be a good option for you if you have one or more severely damaged, misshapen, or stained teeth.
Crowns are the ideal solution for protecting damaged teeth and restoring your smile, because they cover up and replace your entire tooth, all the way down to your gum line. Crowns are used to fix a number of different issues. Cracked teeth that have been hurt by oral trauma are usually treated with a crown. Crowns are also usually suggested after a root canal to protect the tooth and replace large fillings if the filling is failing, or to repair teeth with extensive decay.
