What are the Uses of Dental Crowns?
Dental crowns are most commonly used to restore cracked or broken teeth or as caps to protect teeth that are weakened by decay or large fillings. They are frequently placed on top of dental implants as a tooth replacements. Back teeth that have had root canal therapy require crowns to prevent fracture of teeth or roots. Crowns form the anchors for permanently cemented dental bridges. A crown is placed on each side of the space left by a missing tooth. A porcelain replacement tooth connected to each crown forms the bridge. Dental crowns can create beautiful cosmetics by covering misshapen or discolored teeth and can even create instant orthodontics in some cases.
