If your tooth is severely damaged due to decay or removal of internal infection after root canal procedure, the dentist may decide to cover the weaker structure with a dental crown. Moreover, a dental crown can be used to hold the prosthetic tooth, i.e. a dental bridge. Moreover, you can get a dental crown if your tooth is badly discolored or misshapen. It means that it can be used in cosmetic dentistry as well.
There are many materials the crowns are made up of. Some of those materials include:
•Porcelain fused to metal
•Porcelain fused to zirconia
The crowns which contain metals do not have the color that of the teeth. Therefore, those crowns are better suited in the back of the mouth. Moreover, those crowns are very strong. If you have got the front teeth to cover, you can go for crowns with porcelain in the composition.
