What are Dental Crowns Treatments?
Crowns and Bridges treatment are basically tooth like covering that are placed over damaged or in place of a missing tooth. It is normally made of an inner strong material and covered with a ceramic material that give it the shape, feel and look of a natural tooth.
How do Crowns work?
In this treatment, a dental crown can be used as a “cap” to entirely cover the damaged tooth. Besides strengthening a weak tooth, crowns are also used to improve the overall appearance and shape of the mouth. Also, multiple crowns can be connected in the form of a bridge to replace missing teeth. Crowns are made from metals and are also available in metal free forms, e.g. Zirconia.
