A dental crown, which is sometimes called a cap, is a restoration that entirely covers the portion of the tooth that is visible above the gums. Crowns are most often used to restore teeth that are significantly damaged or decayed and cannot be restored with a composite filling. The dental crown is designed to restore the tooth to its natural shape, size, and appearance. In addition to repairing damaged teeth, dental crowns can also be used to:
- Attach a dental bridge
- Enhance the overall appearance of your smile
- Support a tooth with a large dental filling when little natural tooth structure remains
- Hold together and strengthen a fractured tooth
- Improve the function and beauty of a misshapen tooth
