Crown is a kind of dental coverage to the implants. They are needed the most when a cavity starts to worsen the situation of a tooth. They are adjoined to the tooth using dental cement. Crowns are also sometimes used to improve the appearance and strength of the teeth. Crowns are constructed by taking the impression of a tooth that they are about to cover. Your dentist may also reduce the size of your tooth to make it appropriate for the crown and place a temporary crown for the time being till the permanent one is prepared.

Types Of Crowns
Majorly there are four types of Dental Crowns-
Base Metal Alloys
The best part of this type of crown is that they require the least amount of healthy tooth to be extracted prior to fitting. It is made up of non-noble metals which makes it very strong but prone to corrosion.
Generally used for front teeth placement because of their ability to blend with the natural colour of your teeth.
Porcelain fused to Metal
It is popular and majorly useful because of its high durability.
A mixture of Gold, Copper and other materials. Strengthening bond and the ability to never fracture makes it a desirable option for crowns.
Application Of Crowns
The application of crown will require two separate type of visits to your dentist. The first would be regarding the examination of your teeth that are they liable enough to support a dental crown. If not then your dentist will make appropriate adjustments by making the tooth the right size for supporting your crown. The dentist would fill the area
With a temporary crown and would send the impression of your tooth and the nearby teeth to the dental lab for the making of a permanent crown.
In your second visit you will have your temporary crown replaced with the permanent one with a special kind of adhesive.
Crowns can last lifetime if they are properly maintained. You must become very particular regarding your oral hygiene and adopt two times brushing your teeth. You must clean your back molars specifically and have regular visits to your dentist for proper maintenance.
The crown is an artificial placement and hence it requires some time to fuse in with your natural teeth. For the beginning days try to avoid any chewy, gumy or hard food that may dislodge the crown form its place. Dislodging of crown should not call for panic instead call your dentist and make an appointment. Don’t use any homemade adhesive for joining it back. It is a delicate piece of porcelain or ceramic and requires special attention and care so feel free to contact your dentist any time.
Some people have the wrong notion that a crowned tooth no longer needs to be maintained properly. Crowns and bridges are very much prone to decay near the gum-line the same as a natural tooth.
The side effects of this process can be-
- Allergic Reaction: the people with metal crowns can develop immune system problems and chronic fatigue syndrome. Keep in touch with your dentist for quicker healing.
- Breakage: In certain cases if your bite is dis aligned although this is a very rare condition your crown may break or fall.
- Bleeding & Nerve Injury:Since it is an intricate process the dentist may accidentally touch the jawbone nerve leading to bleeding or numbness in lips, teeth and tongue.
- Sensitivity:This is the most common side effect of Crown Placement. Once the effect of anaesthesia wears out your tooth may become uncomfortable and it becomes sensitive to hot and cold foods. It is recommended that you must use sensitive toothpastes designed especially for overcoming the after effects of surgeries.
