Of all the dental restorations, the dental crown is one of the most versatile and useful for improving your smile’s health, function and beauty. Dental crowns, also known as caps, can be made of ceramic, porcelain, zirconia, gold, stainless steel, or a combination of porcelain and metal. Each crown is designed to fit over your full, natural tooth. In preparation, a small amount of tooth enamel is removed to allow the crown to be cemented on to the dentin.
Some of the many uses of a dental crown include:
- Holding a dental bridge in place
- Capping your dental implant
- Protecting a tooth after a root canal treatment
- Improving the color of your tooth
- Covering and protecting a tooth with a large fracture
- Supporting a tooth with a large filling
In order to protect and maintain your new dental crown, you need to continue brushing and flossing the crown as you would for your natural teeth, paying special attention to the crown’s base. If you would like to learn more about how dental crowns can help your smile, call our team today.
