A crown, sometimes known as dental cap, is a type of dental restoration which completely caps or encircles a tooth or dental implant.
Crowns are often needed when a large cavity threatens the health of a tooth. They are typically bonded to the tooth using a dental cement. Crowns can be made from many materials.
Crowns are often used to restore the teeth or to improve their appearance. The crown restores the tooth to its normal shape, size, and function.
