A crown is an artificial covering that encloses the remaining area of a natural tooth. A dental crown is one of the finest choices for restoring the aesthetics and strength of the teeth. Several reasons for the need for a dental crown are to improve the tooth look, restore a damaged, decayed, or broken tooth, the strength of the weak tooth, protect root filling, and assist fixed bridge.
Disease or accident may result in damage or weakness to one or more teeth. Crown is a great way to save and strengthen your natural tooth, and also it safeguards your teeth from the tooth extraction procedure. A minor decay of tooth can be repaired with fillings, but in case of severe tooth decay, a tooth needs to be removed. Removing a tooth will result in the need for crowns.
A conventional crown encloses the whole tooth. On the other hand, a partial crown will not cover the full tooth and covers only a part of the tooth. Any crown fitting requires some adaptations to the natural tooth to place the artificial tooth perfectly. The partial crown needs only a few changes to the natural tooth. They are also called as onlays, inlays, or three-quarter crowns.
A dental crown is commonly made up of porcelain fused metal, all-porcelain, all-ceramic, all resin, or all metal. Temporary crowns are made from composite materials or acrylic materials designed to place over the natural tooth for a few weeks.
