Crowns or more commonly known as CAPS are copings that are placed over the tooth to strengthen it to bear all forces while mastication.
Crowns were in old days made up of gold silver and other precious Alloys but with time and more concern about aesthetics ,ceramics or porcelain are used to make them.
Ceramics and Porcelain are tooth color material that has shade and color exactly like the natural tooth . Latest generation of crowns include CAD CAM guided ALL Ceramic crowns that are most preferred these days .They are highly precise ,with exact margins to natural tooth that leaves no micro or Nano space for future seepage of saliva between crown and tooth , and hence further decay .
For posterior now days All Ceramic Bruxzir or Monolithic Zirconia crowns are there which have high strength and are also very aesthetic .Bruxzir zirconia crowns are virtually unbreakable and there fit and margins are next to natural tooth .They are used for posterior teeth .
Crowns are given to strengthen the worn out tooth.
