What You Need to Know About Dental Crowns
Porcelain crowns were once commonly referred to as "caps." After some preparation to the underlying tooth, a porcelain crown is positioned over the tooth and secured. Crowns allow you to retain your natural underlying structure while giving you a complete, fully-functional smile. Porcelain crowns look completely natural and can correct bite problems, spaces between teeth, and the angulations of teeth. They can also be used to permanently replace missing teeth as part of a bridge or over a dental implant.
Dental Crowns vs Dental Implants
While dental crowns are used to produce the tooth that sits on top of the implant they are also used to restore damaged or decayed teeth as well as teeth that have undergone root canals. Dental implants are used when teeth are completely missing whereas dental crowns are used to restore teeth that are damaged. Dental crowns do require the dentist to prepare the tooth before treatment and should be looked at as a last resort when other less invasive treatments are not enough.
