Tooth loss is a serious problem these days. Loss of teeth is due to malocclusions, cavities, plague and bacterial infection. It is stressing to realize that loss of teeth can affect the beauty of ones’ smile. Dentistry has innovated a technology where the lost tooth can be replaced with the help of artificial tooth or implants.
Dental implants are orthodontic replacements for missing teeth. There are other appliances that can be used to replace lost or broken teeth. In the field of orthodontics, we can use restorations. Restorations will help to restore the natural functionality of the smile. They will also provide a solution to broken teeth. A common restorative technique is a dental crown.
What are Dental Crowns?
Crowns are dental restorations that are used to provide a solution to broken teeth. Crowns are cap-like restoration devices. They will cover the damaged teeth making it look like natural ones. Crowns may be of different materials. They come in all-metal, ceramic-on-metal, and all-ceramic forms.
Why do we need Dental Crowns?
The sole purpose of dental crowns is to restore broken teeth. We recommend our patients to use crowns for a variety of reasons and here is why.
