A crown is a tooth-shaped “cap” that rebuilds and strengthens a damaged or weakened tooth. Unlike dental fillings that simply patch or fill in a portion of a tooth, a dental crown fully covers the entire visible portion of a tooth that lies above the gum line.
Crowns improve the outer surface and appearance of a tooth, restoring its shape and size and improving its overall strength and appearance. In case of discolored teeth, dental crowns will hide the discoloration and improve the appearance of your teeth.
Dental crowns can also be used as anchors for dental bridges or coverings for dental implants.
