A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that is placed over a damaged tooth to help restore its original appearance. These tooth crowns improve the shape, size and strength of damaged teeth. Crowns are cemented into place and encase the entire visible portion of a tooth that sits above the gum line.
Dental crowns are used to:
- Protect a weak tooth from breaking or to hold together parts of a cracked tooth
- Hold dental bridges in place
- Cover misshapen or discolored teeth
- Restore an already broken or chipped tooth or a tooth that has been severely worn down
