CrownWhat is a dental crown?

A crown is a type of dental restoration used to restore a damaged tooth to its original shape, size, and appearance. The dental crown is designed to entirely cover a tooth that is significantly damaged or decayed in order to restore its health and function. Dental crowns may be created from a number of materials, including gold, porcelain fused metal, all-porcelain, or composite resin. Porcelain and composite resin crowns match the color of natural teeth and provide an aesthetic, natural-looking restoration for your smile.
