A dental crown acts as a cap over a broken tooth. Various materials, such as porcelain or metal, are used to create it. You might have a crown covering a molar, but until you yawn, you hardly ever see it. Alternatively, you might have custom-made crowns on your front teeth that were made to look just like your natural teeth. When selecting a crown for a patient, several things are considered, such as Cost, durability, strength, and cosmetics.
A dental crown with a natural appearance is also vital for many people since many people do not want others to know they have a dental crown.
