Dental crowns described
Many patients ask, what is a dental crown? A dental crown is a porcelain restoration designed to act as an extra layer of protection for a natural tooth. Dental crowns may be used to cover a tooth that has been broken or chipped. Teeth that have undergone root canal therapy may also benefit from the placement of a crown, as it can strengthen the structure of the tooth. Teeth with large fillings can be covered with a crown for protection. These restorations have many benefits.:
What is the process of obtaining a dental crown?
Crowns are custom-made. They are fabricated from molds taken of the tooth structure after a substantial portion of the enamel is filed away. The dentist ensures the restorations are made to match the shape, size, and color of the existing teeth, which allows the crown to blend in with the smile. This is important to maintain the integrity and appearance of the smile over the course of time, improving aesthetics.
