A dental crown is a cap that covers a damaged tooth to protect what remains of the tooth structure, providing you with a strong, long-lasting layer of protection against tooth fracture.
Dental crowns are used to treat teeth that have lost a significant part of its structure, which can happen as a result of tooth decay or the failure of a large filling. In some cases, dental crowns can also be used on teeth that have been worn down to the extent of vulnerability.
Historically, many materials starting from Gold to various alloys were used to make the crowns, This was convenient as gold and other alloys were easily available & strong. But aesthetically these crowns were not very pleasing. The introduction of porcelain/ceramics in dentistry paved the way to a more aesthetic crowns that matched the shades of the natural tooth.
These porcelain bonded crowns (PBCs) are still used at both the front and the back of the mouth but, as dental technology has improved, it is now possible to achieve much more aesthetically pleasing results.
