A dental crown is a tooth-shaped "cap" that is placed over a tooth to cover the tooth to restore its shape and size, strength, and improve its appearance by your Dentist. The crowns, when cemented into place, fully encase the entire visible portion of a tooth that lies at and above the gum line.
The reason for a crown is to strengthen a tooth as........
When a crown is placed over a weak tooth, it can provide the extra strength the tooth needs so that it can continue doing the job it is supposed to do.
During the Root canal Treatment (RCT), the decayed tooth structure and the infected pulp is removed along with its blood supply. With no blood supply, there is lack of nourishment to the remaining tooth, because of which it becomes brittle. As a result the entire structure of the tooth becomes more prone to fractures. Due to the brittle nature of the treated tooth, its normal functionality is lost. To make this tooth functional and to prevent the tooth from fracturing, Dentists recommend covering the root-canal-treated tooth with a crown.
Permanent crowns can be made from stainless steel, all metal (such as gold or another alloy), porcelain-fused-to-metal, all resin, or all ceramic.
The crown can help in chewing, brushed, and flossed like a regular tooth. The life span of a crown depends on the amount of “wear and tear” the crown is exposed to: how well you followgood oral hygiene practices, and your personal mouth-related habits. Avoid habits such as grinding or clenching your teeth, chewing ice, biting fingernails, and using your teeth to open packaging.
