Crowns are prescribed for damaged, decayed or broken teeth.
The tooth is prepared by eliminating surface structure.
After fabrication, the crown is cemented to prepared tooth.
Crowns restore the natural beauty and health of teeth.
Crowns are prescribed when a tooth or teeth are too badly decayed, broken or cracked to be easily restored with a filling. Crowns are normally needed for teeth that have had root canals. Crowns are also placed on dental implants to replace missing teeth. Crowns can be made entirely of gold or porcelain fused to a gold substrate for strength and beauty. However, with new technology, crowns can be made entirely from high-strength ceramic and porcelain for beautiful cosmetic results.
