Crown


Also known as caps, a crown is a shape of tooth, but hollowed. It is fitted over a damaged tooth, so that after the restoration work is over, the tooth looks like an original. Crown restoration is a common part of cosmetic dentistry in dental clinic in Delhi, because it is easy and cheaper on part of people to put up such prosthesis. Crown is required for various kinds of patients. In different tooth conditions, crown can help you get back the original look of a tooth, which doesn’t show any of the previous damage. For highly decayed tooth and erosion of the enamel, filling is not usually possible. When the inlay work is not possible with a damaged or decayed tooth, crown is the best option. Composite bonding is done to fill up small chips in teeth. Fracture of the tooth of large size can be restored by using crowns. Many people go for crowns as additional protection to the filled cavities in enamel. After root canal treatment, this prosthesis is required for strengthening of tooth. In case of dental implants, crown can be useful for hiding the abutment. Eroded tooth, due to betel eating can be repaired by crowns. Even though crowns are the first alternatives for cosmetic dentistry, for largely damaged tooth, this can be a good support, instead of taking out the tooth completely. These are usually made from gold, but more preferably, they are made from fusion of metal alloys. Outer shell is made of porcelain, so that it fits fine with the colour of other teeth. All porcelain or ceramic crowns are better for aesthetic purposes, as they provide a natural look. Putting a crown is a lengthy procedure in any renowned Cosmetic Dentistry Clinic in India, but can create good results if all the steps are done properly. The steps involved are:

  • Tooth is first cleaned and reshaped to get a fit of the crown
  • An impression of the tooth is then taken using putty
  • The crown is prepared in this particular shape
  • The crown is made to sit on the prepared original tooth, with the help of an etching material
  • After checking for the appearance, the crown is cemented strongly into place

Custom made crowns are usually best because of their fit, but they take some time to be prepared in laboratories. Cost of such procedures can be a few thousand rupees, although variations in prices depend on the clinic in India and the cosmetic surgeon in Delhi, undertaking the process. Material of the crown also affects the total cost of the process.
