The use of dental crowns is fast increasing among the people. Ranging from cosmetic reasons to holding dental bridges in place to being a covering for weak teeth, dental crowns are widely used in dentistry.
What is a dental crown and why is it used?
A dental crown is nothing but a cover that is put on tooth so as to improve its appearance or to strengthen it further or to alter its size or shape. It is used to enclose the part of the tooth that is visible or simply the part of the tooth above the gum line. Dental crowns are used because, in the case of weakened teeth, only a crown can sustain the teeth. When it comes to appearance, people with odd shaped teeth or irregular sized teeth prefer to use a dental crown to improve the appearance of their teeth. The maximum use of dental crowns is in the field of cosmetic dentistry. The conventional dentistry uses crowns to cover dental implants and to support weaker teeth.
Where all can a dental crown be used?
A dental crown is used for holding dental bridges in their place. It can be used to cover a discoloured tooth or to re shape a misshaped tooth. Dental crowns are used to restore worn out or broken teeth. Dental crowns are also used in cases of children where the teeth has been damaged to an extent that it cannot be repaired by filling. When, dental implants are used, a crown may be used to cover it up. When a tooth is suspected to be susceptible to breaking apart, a dentist may suggest the use of a dental crown.
