What is a tooth crown and when is it used?
Dental crowns are a great option to repair and beautify teeth. When teeth are severely broken or broken, a tooth crown becomes a necessity. The artificial crown is placed over the broken tooth like a cap. In fact, crowns are recommended as a preventive measure for weakened teeth. When a crown is placed on a weakened tooth, it provides the strength the tooth needs to be able to chew effectively without causing further damage. The tooth gets the support it needs because the crown sits completely around and on the tooth.

Ceramic crown (with metal frame)
This is a cross between a metal and a porcelain crown. These tooth crowns consist of a metal substructure, which is layered with a porcelain veneer, which is fused with the metal in a high-temperature furnace. This hybrid composition gives the crown a tough structure with a tooth-colored exterior. Ceramic crowns with a metal framework are strong and can be used for anterior or posterior teeth. Though they come close to natural teeth, the metal substructure inhibits light transmission through the tooth and crown, and these restorations can look quite dull and opaque. The metal underneath can also show through as a dark edge under the gums.
