Has your tooth lost its shape and size due to decay or an injury? Does it not function the way that it used to? A dental crown might be a great way to restore your damaged tooth to its original state.
A dental crown is a tooth-shaped “cap” that is placed over a tooth. This cap covers the remains of the existing tooth to restore its shape, size and strength and improve its appearance. Crowns are cemented into place and fully encase the entire visible portion of a tooth that lies at and above the gum line.
