Dental Crowns (Caps)

Caps are a preferred option for restoring the health and aesthetics of broken, decayed, severely cracked, or misaligned teeth. These crowns are cap-like structures that entirely encase the tooth.

Different types of crown applications can be chosen, including metal-supported or non-metal-supported.

Dental crowns can be made from zirconium, porcelain, and full ceramic (E-Max). Zirconium or E-Max porcelain crowns are often preferred for dental aesthetics due to their gum tissue compatibility and high durability.

When Dental Crowns are Suitable:

  • Missing Teeth: Dental crowns can be integrated with bridge techniques to treat missing teeth. They are also used as the top part of dental implants.
  • Broken Teeth: Teeth can break due to external factors or decay. Dental crowns offer a long-term solution for treating broken teeth.
  • Decayed Teeth: Dental crowns are used to restore teeth affected by decay due to maintenance issues or genetic factors, aiming for a healthy and aesthetically pleasing appearance. After removing the decayed part and cleaning the tooth, a dental crown matching the appropriate size and shape can be placed to fully cover the tooth.
  • Misaligned Teeth: Misalignments primarily arise from genetic factors, missing teeth, or teeth grinding. While various methods exist to treat misaligned teeth, dental crowns provide a quick solution.
  • Cracked and Worn Teeth: Factors such as aging, dietary habits, and inadequate or improper dental hygiene can lead to minor cracks and surface abrasions on teeth. Depending on the extent of the damage, your dentist may recommend a dental crown treatment.
  • Tooth Discoloration: Discoloration caused by excessive consumption of tea, coffee, cigarettes, or genetic factors is a significant cosmetic concern. Along with inadequate oral hygiene, genetics can also lead to permanent yellowing of teeth. In such cases, teeth whitening methods may only sometimes be effective. However, applying a dental crown can provide a dazzling white smile.
