Dental Crowns and Caps
Crowns are synthetic caps, usually made of a material like porcelain, placed on the top of a tooth.
Understanding Dental Crowns and Caps
When it comes to restoring damaged or weakened teeth, dental crowns and caps play a vital role in improving both functionality and aesthetics. These prosthetic devices are custom-made coverings that encase a tooth, providing strength, protection, and an enhanced appearance. This article explores the benefits, types, procedure, and care associated with dental crowns and caps.
Dental crowns, also known as dental caps, are dental restorations that cover the entire visible portion of a tooth above the gumline. They are designed to mimic the natural shape, size, and color of a tooth, ensuring a seamless integration with the surrounding teeth. Crowns and caps can be made from various materials, including porcelain, ceramic, metal alloys, or a combination of these, depending on the specific needs of the patient.

The Dental Crown and Cap Procedure
Dental crowns and caps are versatile dental restorations that offer numerous benefits, including enhanced aesthetics, improved functionality, and strengthened tooth structure.
During an initial consultation, the dentist evaluates the tooth, takes X-rays, and discusses treatment options. If a crown or cap is deemed necessary, the tooth is prepared by removing a small portion of its outer structure to accommodate the crown.
Impression and Temporary Crown
An impression of the prepared tooth is taken to create a custom crown or cap. While the permanent restoration is being fabricated in a dental laboratory, a temporary crown or cap is placed to protect the tooth.
Permanent Crown Placement
Once the permanent crown or cap is ready, the temporary restoration is removed, and the dentist carefully fits and bonds the permanent crown onto the prepared tooth using dental cement or adhesive.
After placement, the dentist ensures proper bite alignment, makes necessary adjustments for a comfortable fit, and evaluates aesthetics to achieve a natural-looking blend with surrounding teeth.
