Dental Crowns

Dental Crowns

A dental crown is a restoration that completely caps (hence the colloquial term, cap) an existing tooth or replaces a missing one. It is made of a ceramic material that is durable and looks natural. It protects the tooth from recurring decay better than most other types of restorative options. The main disadvantage of the use of crowns is the extensive “preparation” (i.e. reduction in size) of the natural tooth. This is irreversible and means that the tooth will forever need to be covered by a crown.
