Dental Crowns are a form of restoration for teeth that has had too much decay or has lost a lot of its original strength and form.Dental crowns are usually recommended when the natural tooth structure is compromised, when it is damaged from either trauma or extensive decay.
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.
Crowns are greatly esthetic and bond to tooth structure when cemented. Zirconia is currently the strongest porcelain used in dentistry and has been made to look more esthetic than before.
In most cases, dental crowns on the front teeth can last up to 15 years. However, if they are properly taken care of, it can even last for 25-30 years.
