DENTAL PROSTHESES : What is a perfect Dental Crown

In dentistry, a crown refers to the upper part of a tooth protruding from the gingiva. 

On the other hand, the term dental crown stands for a type of dental restoration, which completely caps a tooth or implant. 


Crowns are often used to restore the health of a tooth that is threatened for example by a large cavity or damaged by accident. 

Crowns are anchored to the tooth using dental cement and can be made of a variety of materials. Metal is a common material choice, as well as crowns made of plastic, ceramic or porcelain.
