Application of a Dental Crown

The usage of dental crown is becoming very popular day by day. Dental crown is placed in the following situations:

  • To make a cosmetic modification.
  • It is used for covering a dental implant.
  • It covers severely discolored or misshapen tooth.
  • It holds a dental bridge in place.
  • It is used to cover and support a tooth with large filling where there is not much tooth left to hold the fillings.
  • To restore a severely worn out tooth or a tooth that has broken.
  • Protects weak tooth from breaking and holds together the parts of a cracked tooth.
  • For children it might be used to save a tooth that has been damaged to the extent that it cannot support a filling.

A crown is either made of stainless steel, all metal, porcelain fused to metal, all ceramic or all resin.
