The tooth can be divided into two basic parts – the root and the crown. A cemented restoration that partially or completely covers the outside of the clinical crown is referred to as a dental crown.
There are many situations that require a tooth to be restored with a dental crown or an Inlay/Onlay:
– A large filling that involves half the width of the tooth needs to be covered with a dental crown.
– A root canal treatment leaves the tooth hollowed out and will need a dental crown to prevent fracturing.
– Teeth that have an unacceptable appearance can be altered using dental crowns.
– Dental crowns are placed over implants to close gaps from missing teeth.
Dental crowns can be made out of a gold alloy, other metal alloys, stainless steel, all-porcelain, composite resin or zirconia. Dental crowns are still susceptible to fracture and marginal cavities so it is important to continue treating them as you would your natural teeth and to focus on a good daily oral hygiene

Here we have a patient that is unsatisfied with her smile. Although she is in her fifties and isn’t suffering from any pain but she wants to achieve a more youthful smile. She has a gummy smile that means she showed the gums while smiling hence the asymmetry on gum line is visible. In order to achieve aesthetically acceptable smile the right and left side of gums and teeth must be at the same level , also we are able to correct the cross bite on the left side with the help of ceramic crowns . The correct bite is when the upper teeth come over the lower teeth And not the other way around as is in this case on the left side. We also choose a whiter color for a more natural look.
In this case we replaced the old crowns and bridges and added posterior crowns . Patient is very happy with her new smile.
