When there isn't enough tooth left to support a large filling, a crown can assist reinforce the tooth. Crowns can also be used to hold bridges in place, protect a weak tooth from shattering, or replace a fractured tooth. A crown is a fantastic way to hide discolored or improperly formed teeth. It can also be used to disguise a dental implant.
If your dentist suggests a crown, it's most likely to address one of these issues. Your dentist's first concern, like yours, is to assist you in maintaining the health of your teeth and a brilliant smile.
Crowns are made of various materials. The most popular crown material is porcelain, which can be matched to the natural color of your teeth. Crowns can also be made from gold, alloys, or other materials.
The dentist will take an impression of your tooth and send it to a dental lab where the crown will be made. In some cases, the dentist may be able to place a temporary crown on your tooth while you wait for the permanent one.
Once the permanent crown is ready, the dentist will remove the temporary crown and cement the new one in place. With proper care, your new crown should last many years.

Crowns were introduced to the public by dentists around 1950. A crown is a tooth-shaped "cap" that is placed over a weakened or damaged tooth to restore its shape, size, and strength. Crowns are made of various materials, but the most popular type is porcelain because it can be matched to the natural color of your teeth. Crowns can also be made from alloys, gold, or other materials.

However, the technology back then are not as advanced and people had to go through a lot of pain during the whole process. Thankfully, with today's technology, crowns have become a more common dental procedure that does not require much pain at all!
