A dental crown, or cap, looks like a natural tooth and fits over the entire part of a tooth to provide it with a new exterior. Crowns are custom-made to fit your teeth and are cemented into place so that they cover the entire tooth that sits above the gumline.
Dental crowns have several functions including:
Protecting a weak tooth from breaking
Preventing a cracked tooth from becoming more damaged
Supporting dental bridges
Improving the appearance of irregular or discolored teeth
Restoring a tooth that is damaged from tooth decay
