A crown or also known as a dental cap is a restorative procedure that covers the tip of the tooth or dental implant. The crown is fabricated outside the mouth, and is formed by taking an impression of the tooth and creating a suitable cover. It is essentially used to prevent the excessive growth of cavities and the broken aspect of the tooth.
The fabricated crown, which can be made from special alloys or ceramics (people may also use gold for aesthetic purposes) is attached to the tooth by special dental cement:
Why have Crowns?
Crowns are normally used to:
- Restore the form, function and appearance of badly broken down, worn or fractured teeth.
- Improve the aesthetics of unsightly teeth.
- Maintain the structural stability and reduce the risk of fractures of extensively restored teeth
- Restore a dental implant
Crowns are considered to be the superior form of restorative and support procedure, and people are advised to go for this therapy to restore root canaled teeth, and if your tooth requires extensive support.
The benefits of having a crown procedure done is its longevity, a crown may remain effective for 10 years. It offers long term support and is especially beneficial to older patients that may not be able to go for dental procedures with the same regularity as younger patients.
