A Guide On Dental Crowns: The Basics

By Javier Fuller

Twentieth Century saw many crowns fall, many replaced, many vanished; many became show-pieces in the museums! But the one crown, without the command of the army that is on the rampage is dental crown! Earlier the glory of the crown was on the head, now it is on the teeth, mostly invisible, sealed between the lips!

A dental crown is also known as cap-- in keeping up with the democratic traditions. They are dental reinstallations and cemented to encase the tooth. Dental crowns are mainly used to:

1. Build a teeth or tooth that is broken or decayed
2. Strengthen the teeth
3. In order to improve the look of a teeth or tooth.

Dental crowns, once placed are not your permanent assets. There could be the need for replacement of the crown. They cover up the whole area of the tooth that is visible to make a new outer surface. It is made up of porcelain, a metal alloy or gold. With the ever increasing price of the bullion, it is better to have the crown/crowns in gold as it becomes an investment, if the crown were to lose its 'power' and fall out!

Making a dental crown is an art. The role of your dental surgeon is indirect and that of the dental technician in the laboratory is direct. Before casting or fabricating, a dental technician has to take into account several factors like your bite and jaw movements from several angles. Dental crown is created away from your mouth, unlike fillings which are created in your mouth. This is the essential difference between the dental fillings and the dental crown.

Dental fillings do not contribute much to enhance cosmetic beauty of your smile, whereas dental crown achieves this objective. Magnificently so, if it is a gold crown!

Do not go by the gold appeal and opt for dental crown, if other options are also available. The main function of your teeth is to masticate food. If the installation of the crown causes problems for you, you will find it difficult to bear the day to day irritant!

There are softer and conservative methods to improve the health of your tooth. A porcelain veneer, dental bonding and teeth whitening are the other options.
