Each tooth consists of a crown-visible part of the tooth and one or more roots. In cases when the natural crown of the tooth is more damaged and when it can no longer be repaired with a filling, or for aesthetic reasons – inappropriate shape, color, position of the teeth, artificial ones are made. crowns.
It is necessary to grind such a tooth to the appropriate shape so that a “cover” can be placed on it, ie. an artificial crown that gives the tooth a new complete shape. Crowns can be metal-ceramic or ceramic, ie. “metal-free”.
