At the point when a tooth is intensely decayed, it is probably going to break and lose extensive tooth substance. Crowns, otherwise called caps, restore damaged teeth and mimic the shape, size and colour of the surrounding teeth. Crowns are indicated for cracked teeth, teeth with deep cavities, to protect teeth that have been root-canal treated, to provide extra support for bridges and to cover poorly shaped or discoloured teeth.
Crowns can be made of metal, ceramic, or zirconia material. Among the variations, zirconia crowns are the hardest and most sturdy crowns accessible. They are specially crafted and fitted for every patient, contingent upon the size and length of the common teeth.
The tooth to be crowned is set up by lessening the measure of the tooth, by utilizing nearby anaesthesia. This is done to make space for the crown that will be fitted. An impression of the tooth is then taken to quantify the correct size. The impression is then sent to a lab where gifted specialists manufacture the crown. An impermanent crown is fitted to keep away from harms to the normal tooth while the crown is being set up in the lab.
