What are Dental Crowns?
A dental crown is a ‘cap’ that is placed over a damaged tooth in order to restore its size, shape, and strength and to improve its appearance. A crown fully enclosed the visible portion of the tooth above the gum line.
Porcelain or ceramic crowns match the color of natural teeth. Other materials used can include gold and metal alloys, acrylic, and ceramic. Porcelain bonded to a metal shell is strong and closely resembles a natural tooth.
