Dental crown is the type of restoration in dentistry. It is produced in the laboratory and after fixing it covers the visible part of the tooth. Crowns are used to repair damaged teeth ―  broken, damaged by caries, cracked, lost their natural colour. They are also used for restoring the functionality of the tooth, and for the bargain it aesthetic appeal.

 

The following reasons for putting crowns on teeth can be:

1.  Aspiration to restore the anatomically correct shape of the tooth

2.  The desire to restore the function of the tooth

3.  The aim to strengthen the tooth

4.  The desire to improve the aesthetic appearance of teeth

The crown virtually covers the tooth, becoming its new surface and restoring the original shape of the tooth. Crowns, not like fillings, are made outside the oral cavity. Before its producing doctor does the tooth mold, molds the plaster model and sends it to a laboratory for the manufacture of crowns.

 

The restoration of teeth consists of several stages. First, the patient are given an anaesthesia to numb the tooth and its surrounding soft tissue. Then doctor prepares the tooth. Its width should be reduced, because the thickness of the metal-ceramic crowns is about 1.5 mm. While reducing the size of the tooth, the dentist is changing its shape. It should be comfortable for the crown to “sit down” on the tooth. Also in the cervical part of the tooth special benches are made.

The doctor takes an impression of both jaws, to make the proper dentition. Previously people used an ordinary plaster for this, now we prefer modern techniques. The finished mold is sent to a lab, where they from plaster make an exact copy of the patient's teeth. While the permanent crowns are made, the patient for a few days put the temporary copy.

 

When the identical color of the tooth crown is selected and prepared, then it replaces the copy. Permanent crowns are fixed to teeth with a special solution, which ensures its secure fit. Since then, patient may forget about the problems with the cured tooth, and in a couple days he forgets about the presence in the mouth a "foreign body".
