A dental crown is a cosmetic restoration tool used to improve the shape of your tooth and help strengthen it at the same time. Tooth crowns, also known as “tooth caps,” are commonly used on teeth that are broken, cracked, worn or partially destroyed due to tooth decay.
What is a dental crown? A dental crown is a full-covering cap that will be cemented onto a tooth. When the procedure is finished, the dental crown becomes the new outer surface of your tooth.
Occasionally, we might need to do a partial crown. Partial crowns are used when a tooth does not have sufficient strength to hold a dental filling.
