Dental crowns are simply custom made dental caps that act as protective covering to the restored tooth. Oftentimes, the restoration of the tooth go beyond dental fillings, therefore, crowns are used cover the tooth, preserve what is left of it and restore the anatomy and function. The materials used to fabricate a dental crown are metals, ceramic, porcelain fused to metal (PFM), all-porcelain, and resin,
Why do you need a dental crown?
Here are the reasons that call for a dental crown:
Types of Dental Crowns:
Different materials are used to fabricate crown according to the shape, size and location of the tooth.
Use of gold to make dental crowns was highly popular in the past as it reflected wealth and royalty. Even though metals offer high strength and high durability, they have poor aesthetics (cannot be used in anterior teeth- unless you want to) and requires grinding a large part of the tooth to nubs.
Ceramic is a tooth colored dental material that offers high, eye-pleasing aesthetics. Moreover, porcelain is a form of ceramic. It has high durability, stain and wear resistance, closely resembles the natural color of the tooth. However, they are inferior in strength to the metal crowns. Hence, used widely in cosmetic dentistry.
To overcome the aesthetics issues of the metal crowns and strength problems with the porcelain crowns, dentists have come up with a better solution. The inner part of the crown is made with metal while the upper part that will show in your smile is fabricated from porcelain. Therefore, PFMs are widely used to restore any tooth in the mouth!
2. Dental implants:
Missing teeth severs the smile and compromise the aesthetics.
A dental implant is a fixed prosthesis that have a titanium screw that is placed surgically in the tooth socket (jawbone) replacing the roots of the missing tooth. Once the tissues have healed an abutment followed by a dental crown are seated over the implant screw.
Dental implants, although very expensive, mimics the natural tooth in the best possible way. They are stronger, stable and more durable than any other tooth replacement options. With great hygiene maintenance and regular visits to the dentists, they can last you a lifetime. Your bone will resorb, but the implant will slow the process, making the jawbone even stronger.
Implants do seem like a great option, but not everyone is a suitable candidate for it, such as:
