When your tooth is damaged but not lost, a dental crown is the best alternative to restore its structure and function.
Crown often called as “Cap” is an artificial tooth that covers the damaged tooth. It encicrcles the prepared natural tooth, thus giving it back the natural appearance and desired strength.
Crowns may be suggested for various reasons such as:
- Most commonly after RCT, to reinforce the undergoing tooth
- Over a discolored, fractured or worn out tooth to improve its appearance
- To strengthen a tooth with an extensive filing since it is structurally compromised.
- Over an implant to provide tooth like shape & structure
- To replace a missing tooth by crowning its adjacent teeth.
- For proper alignment of teeth to enhance the cosmetic appearance (digital smile makeover)
Many type of crowns are available, but with increased esthetic requirement the tooth colored or the metal free crowns are the ones being used widely.
