Dental crowns have been used in dentistry for many decades. There is even evidence that ancient civilizations experimented with early forms of crowns. Today, dental crowns are a versatile restoration at Town and Country Cosmetic Dentistry and Implant Center in Chesterfield MO.
Dental crowns (also called caps) cover the entire visible portion of the tooth and are cemented in place. They are used to strengthen teeth that have been worn down or weakened by decay or injury, to restore the original shape of a tooth, or, sometimes, to simply improve its appearance.
The most common types of crowns are:
- All-porcelain (ceramic)
The material used is determined by several factors.
