The crowns are the portions of your teeth that are visible above the gum line – the part that you use for biting, chewing and grinding. Dental crowns, from a reconstructive perspective, are ceramic restorations used to repair teeth that have sustained significant damage or decay. While the roots of these teeth are still healthy, a large portion of the crown has had to be removed and therefore requires replacement.
What are Dental Crowns?
“Crowns or caps are fabricated from strong and durable ceramic materials that mimic the optical properties of real dental enamel,” explain dental crown specialists in Pueblo and Colorado Springs. “So, once they have been placed, your restored tooth will look and function just like it used to before it got badly damaged or decayed. Better still, this ceramic material is far more resistant to staining than your natural enamel, so your teeth will continue to look beautiful for much longer.”
