Crowns are tooth-shaped caps that are placed on top of your natural teeth. These can correct a range of functional and cosmetic concerns, including discoloration, chipped or broken teeth, space between the teeth, and tooth decay. Crowns can also be used to replace missing teeth with the aid of dental implants. Crowns are made to match the color of your teeth so they look completely natural.
A crown, sometimes referred to as a cap, covers a tooth to restore it to its normal shape and size, strengthening and improving its appearance. A crown may be recommended to cover and support a tooth with a large filling. It can be used to attach a bridge, protect a weak tooth from breaking, or restore one that is already broken.
