A crown is a type of dental restoration which completely caps or surrounds a tooth or dental implant. Crowns are often needed when a large cavity threatens the ongoing health of a tooth. They are typically bonded to the tooth using a dental cement.
Crowns are often used to improve the strength or appearance of teeth.
What is the process for Dental Crown?
The most common method of crowning a tooth involves using a dental impression of a prepared tooth by a dentist to fabricate the crown outside of the mouth. The crown can then be inserted at a subsequent dental appointment. Because of the expansion properties, the relatively lower material costs, and the cosmetic benefit, many patients choose to have their crown fabricated with gold.
