A dental crown is a long-term restoration that provides a solution for many dental problems.
A dental crown is essentially a “cap” that is placed over an existing tooth. It is tooth shaped and used to restore a tooth to its appropriate size, strength, and appearance. Dental crowns are permanently cemented into place and function as a natural tooth.
Types of crowns are:
Porcelain Crown – are the most widely used type of crowns for their natural look and metal-free composition.
Zirconia Crown -are made of a new type of material that provides both excellent aesthetics and strength.
Full-Gold Crown – are very durable and strong, which is why they are sometimes used in back teeth.
