A dental crown is a type of dental restoration designed to cover and protect a damaged or decayed tooth. Also known as a cap, a crown is made to fit over the entire visible portion of the tooth. It can be made from a variety of materials, including resin, ceramic, metal, and porcelain. Crowns are a vital tool in dental care and can be used to restore the function and appearance of a tooth damaged by decay, trauma, or other factors.
Several types of dental crowns are available, including those made from zirconia and lithium disilicate, both of which are known for their strength and aesthetic appeal. Zirconia crowns are made from a strong, durable ceramic material that is resistant to wear and tear, making them a popular choice for use in the back of the mouth. Lithium disilicate crowns, also known as IPS e.max, are another type of ceramic crown that is known for its versatility and ability to mimic the natural translucency of tooth enamel.
