A dental crown is a tooth-shaped “cap” that is placed over a tooth and restores the tooth’s shape and size, strength, and appearance.
When cemented into place, a crown encases the entire visible portion of a tooth. The crown is matched in color to your natural teeth.
A dental crown may be needed in the following situations:
• To protect a weak tooth
• To restore a broken tooth
• To hold a dental bridge in place
• To cosmetically cover mis-shapened or discolored teeth
• To cover a dental implant
