Dental Crown in Shreya Hospital
Dentists use dental crowns to repair large cavities or restore broken teeth. Sometimes called a cap, a crown fits over your entire tooth.
In order to place a crown, your dentist must remove some of your natural tooth enamel. So, they’ll alter your tooth (shave part of your tooth down), then place a crown over it.
A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap. Dentists use crowns to restore weak, broken or decayed teeth. Dentists also use crowns to cover dental implants and root canal-treated teeth. Made from a variety of materials, including metal, resin and porcelain, crowns last for many year with proper care.
A crown fits over your entire tooth, like a snug hat. To ensure a proper fit, a dentist will need to remove a small amount of enamel before bonding your new crown in place.
You may need a dental crown to:
- Strengthen a weak tooth.
- Protect and support a cracked tooth.
- Restore a worn-down or broken tooth.
- Hold a dental bridge in place.
- Cover a severely stained or discolored tooth.
- Cover a root canal-treated tooth.
- Cover a dental implant.
Dental Crown at Shreya Hospital
Our dentists may cover your injured tooth with a dental crown. It could be used following a root canal or if the filling is overly big compared to the rest of the tooth. If you have both a big filling and root canal treatment, you could also require a crown. Our dentist might occasionally suggest a crown for aesthetic benefits.
When one of our dentists places a dental crown, it’s crucial to adhere to their postoperative recommendations. You may safeguard your new crown and your natural teeth for many years to come by maintaining proper oral hygiene practises and according to dentist’s advice.
Types of dental crowns:
- Metal crowns
- Porcelain-fused-to-metal (PFM) crowns
- Pressed ceramic crowns
- All-ceramic or porcelain crowns
- Same-day dental crowns
- All-resin crowns
A dental crown is a kind of cap that is affixed to the top of a broken tooth. Dental professionals advise dental crowns when:
- The filling in your tooth is so enormous that it exceeds the size of the surrounding natural tooth.
- Your tooth had root canal treatment.
- You have both a huge filling and root canal treatment.
- You require a crown for aesthetic purposes.
