What are Restorative Dental Crowns (Tooth Caps)?
Restorative dental crowns, sometimes referred to as tooth caps, are a great way to help protect teeth that have decayed. They also work very well as a tooth replacement since they very closely resemble your natural teeth. In fact, a tooth crown can be used to approve the aesthetics of your smile when you have a cracked or broken tooth. Other times, dental crowns are used to help maintain the integrity of a tooth after a root canal or extensive fillings.
Creating dental crowns requires extreme precision and careful planning. They must match your surrounding teeth color in order to blend it. They also must fit over the tooth area and sit in between your other teeth properly to align with your natural bite. Finally, and most importantly, the dental crown must be put in securely so there is no risk of it falling out.
How are Dental Crowns Prepared?
