Dental Crowns Directory

A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that encases a tooth to restore the tooth to its original shape, size, and strength as well as to improve the overall appearance. There are several reasons why a dental crown is needed. They include protecting a weak or cracked tooth, to restore an already broken tooth, to cover a large filling when there isn’t much of the tooth left, to hold a dental bridge in place, to cover misshapen or discolored teeth, or to cover a dental implant. Find out more about the different types of dental crowns, how they are used, and what to expect if you are getting one.
