"He is an excellent dentist and has the best crowns I've ever seen."
A dental crown is a prosthetic cap that is placed over a tooth to improve appearance and functionality by restoring the tooth's size, shape, color, and strength. Crowns are permanent and cannot be removed, which means that a crown will look like a normal part of your mouth as your teeth. Crowns are typically used to cover damaged teeth, and they fully extend to the gum line so that no one can tell it they are fake.
There are many reasons for needing a crown, including cosmetic and restorative purposes. Perhaps the most common reason for a crown is because a tooth has been broken or decayed and not enough tooth is left to support a filling. Additionally, crowns can be used to add support to weakened or fractured teeth to prevent them from breaking further.
Crowns are also used in a number of other dental procedures, including bridges and dental implants. Crowns are the support that holds a dental bridge in place and are usually placed on the teeth surrounding the bridge. In a dental implant, crowns are attached to the abutment to cover the implant and restore lost teeth.
Different materials are used to make crowns, including stainless steel, metals like gold or nickel, porcelain-fused-to-metal, full resin, and full ceramic or porcelain.
