What is a crown?

Simply we can say that a crown  is an artificial restoration which fits over the remaining part of a prepared tooth or fused to your natural tooth to make it stronger and giving it the shape of a natural tooth.

When would I need a crown?

  • you may have large sized fillings,discolored fillings and would like to improve the appearance of the tooth
  • you may have had a root filling which will need a crown to protect it
  • it may help hold a bridge or denture firmly in place
  • or In case of an accident and any damaged tooth


What are the latest trends of them?

The most popular trends for crowns are either Ni free metal fused fully porcelain covered  crowns or Zirconium crowns.Nowadays Zirconium crowns have quicly become the most prefered ones amongst our patients.The other metal free crowns like Zirconium  are E-Max and Alumina .

Zirconium crowns are the most aesthetic crowns available where the dentistry reached today.
They are used because of their very strong ceramic material and also because of their very natural appearance.
We can easly  say that they are the most natural looking,resembling ones own teeth.


What are the main benefits of Zirconium and Metal free crowns?

The crowns and bridgework will not corrode. The normal black gum line that might be visible around a porcelain fused metal crown, will not occur because of the strong ceramic material being used. Also the hot and cold sensations are very limited  because of the lack of electrical conductivity.
