Dental crowns are caps that are affixed to the tops of damaged teeth. When fillings fail to cure the problem, crowns are utilised to preserve, cover, and restore the form of your teeth. Metals, porcelain, resin, and ceramics can all be used to make dental crowns. Other than regular good dental hygiene, they usually do not require any particular maintenance over time.
It is possible for your teeth to get damaged over time. Many things might cause this: dental decay, injuries, or just regular use over time. Your teeth’s form and size might change throughout time.
A dental crown is a tooth-shaped “cap” that is placed over your tooth. The crown restores the tooth’s form, size, strength, and aesthetics and is also used in cosmetic dentistry.
