Crowns are dental prosthetics adhered to patient’s teeth using a strong bonding agent. They can also be used to top implants. Crowns are designed to be permanent and can only be removed by a dentist. They are meant to act like an artificial tooth which is also aesthetically pleasing. These dental devices strengthen teeth and can improve their appearance if the tooth has been stained, cracked, broken, or chipped. Frequently, crowns are used to repair damage when the tooth doesn’t need to be pulled. Additionally, crowns are used with dental implants to replace a missing tooth and provide a very stable, long lasting solution. Since they can be color-matched to the teeth next to it, a porcelain crown is typically preferred.
Dentists utilize crowns to:
If the crown is well cared for it can last a person for quite a long time, if not for the rest of their life. If a crown does become damaged, loose, or even falls off the dentist can repair or replace it in the office.
Usually, porcelain crowns come in two types— porcelain-fused-to-metal and all-porcelain crowns.
