Crown is dental restoration fabricated in a laboratory. It can be fitted on an own tooth or implant. It faithfully reproduces the anatomical shape of a tooth damaged by caries, broken or subjected to root canal treatment. It allows for the correction of shape and colour of the tooth and its position in the dental arch.
The detachment of a large tooth fragment and carious cavities visible in the picture are indications for fitting a crown.
Tooth has two protective layers – enamel and dentine, which protect its vascularised and innervated part – the pulp. To make a crown it is necessary to remove the first and part of the second layer and replace it with a new one – the crown fabricated in the laboratory.
Apart from beautiful appearance imitating the natural tooth, the crown forms a new tooth protection shield resistant to bacteria that cause caries.
With the crown, you can change the shape of the tooth and get a beautiful, natural colour matched to your other teeth
