What are dental crowns?
Our teeth are made up of two natural main components - roots (hidden by the gum line) and the crown (visible part of tooth). Dental crowns are a type of restoration that replace the natural crown and are used to improve the overall aesthetics and function of a tooth.
Crowns are a common solution for when a tooth has been damaged. If there is a part of your natural tooth that can be saved, a dentist would trim your tooth until there is healthy and solid structure. The crown then is used as a custom cap to cover your natural stump.
Dental crowns are completely custom made by a dental laboratory, and can be made from different materials. These different materials might have different characteristics when it comes to hardness and aesthetics. For this reason, prices can range as well.
Benefits of dental crowns
Dental crowns play a vital role in looking after teeth. As previously mentioned, natural teeth will always be the best that we can have. But when they start to fail, dental restorations are the next best thing.
