What are dental crowns
Dental crowns (or caps) are dental restorations that are placed over a tooth when conservative restorations are insufficient to restore form and function.
A dental bridge serves to replace a missing tooth or teeth.
One type of dental bridge consists of dental crowns placed on either side of the missing tooth to connect the replacement tooth or teeth to them. Another type of dental bridge consists of the replacement tooth attached to the adjacent teeth with wing-like appendages.
Dental bridges can also be supported by dental implants. Dental crowns and bridges can be made entirely of tooth-colored material, metal, or a combination to provide optimal aesthetics.
Some metal-free dental crowns and bridges incorporate stress-bearing materials to enhance their strength and wear-resistance.
When is a dental crown required?
Crown and bridgework is a very reliable solution for major dental problems caused through accidents, diseases or wear and tear. Major problems can usually be corrected using these techniques.
Material used in these repairs is either high-grade porcelain, or porcelain bonded to gold.
A higher strength of the porcelain and gold materials is recommended to treat the most serious of dental problems.
Where accidental damage has occurred, resulting in lost teeth, or where teeth have broken away through excessive wear, or as the result of old fillings breaking, crowns and/or bridges can be used as a long-term solution.

Many people have unexplained pain from filled back teeth, which is usually due to cracks in the chewing part of the tooth.
Placing crowns on these teeth relieves the pain and allows a return of full dental function for these teeth.
In front teeth, older fillings can both weaken the teeth and cause “appearance” problems due to staining or chipping.
Is A Dental Crown Right For Me?
A dental crown has many advantages. Dental crowns address aesthetic needs, restore tooth function, and enhance the overall health of your mouth.
In cases where teeth have large broken down fillings, a dental crown can protect and preserve the remaining natural tooth.
To enhance your smile, metal-free, tooth colored, porcelain crowns can also replace older metal or metal with dental porcelain crowns.
Porcelain crowns have translucent qualities that, with the help of an expert cosmetic dentist professionals like Dr. Aguirre at dental Medellín, can look just like natural teeth.
