Types of Dental Crowns

Did you know that the first dental crown placement occurred around 160 A.D? It was first implemented by Etruscans, a civilization that existed in a region which now is central Italy. However, there are now various types of dental crowns available today.

Dental crowns are a tooth-restoring apparatus that help you have a better natural look if you had your tooth accidentally cracked, discolored, weakened, or decayed tooth to the point that fillings can’t occur. They are also done to strengthen the anchor teeth or create a tooth used for the dental implant.

Additionally, different types of dental crowns encase a tooth or fill out the tooth’s shape. Their shapes get determined by the impression the dentist takes from the patient’s teeth after filing the damaged teeth down.
