Dental crowns are dental restorations that are more commonly known as “caps”. These restorations are quite extensive in that they cover all tooth surfaces.
Dental crowns may be the ideal treatment option when previous fillings have broken, fractured or chipped surfaces are noted, or tooth sensitivity is involved. Crowns are also used to improve the appearance of natural teeth that are malformed, malpositioned or discolored.
Crowns can be made from various materials, which include porcelain, Zirconia based porcelain, porcelain-fused-to-metal, and full cast metal.
