What is a Dental Crown?
The crown is the part of the tooth that is visible above the gum line. It is the portion of the that you see when someone smiles. The crown has many functions such as aiding in chewing and the initiation of nutrient extraction throughout the digestion process. The crown can become compromised by bacterial build up which can lead to organic acid production and ultimately the break down of the crown. Because the crown is the aesthetically apparent and obvious part of the smile, it is the focus of many patients and dentists to fix the crown by using prosthetic crowns that can supplement the compromised organic crown.
A prosthetic dental crown can be hand made by a dental laboratory or by a high tech dental milling machine called a CEREC. The creation of a crown takes the spacial analysis and vision of an experienced dentist. If you are in need of a crown do not hesitate to contact our dental specialists today.
