Dental crowns have been used in dentistry for many decades. There is even evidence that ancient civilizations experimented with early forms of crowns. Today, dental crowns are a versatile restoration at The Yuma Dentist in Yuma and Fortuna Foothills AZ.
Dental crowns – also called caps – cover the entire visible portion of the tooth and are cemented in place. They are used to strengthen teeth that have been worn down or weakened by decay or injury; to restore the original shape of a tooth; or sometimes just to improve its appearance.
The most common types of crowns are:
- All-porcelain (ceramic)
The material used is determined by several factors.
