Dental Crowns

What are Dental Crowns?

A dental crown is a tooth-shaped "cap" that is placed over a tooth -- to cover the tooth to restore its shape and size, strength, and improve its appearance.

The crowns, when cemented into place, fully encase the entire visible portion of a tooth that lies at and above the gum line.

What is a Dental Crown made of?


Crowns are made from several types of materials. Metal alloys, ceramics, porcelain, porcelain fused to metal, or composite resin may be used. 

When a crown is made, the material often is colored to blend in with your natural teeth.

Your dentist wants your crown to look natural and fit comfortably in your mouth.

Why are Dental Crowns necessary?

  • To protect a weak tooth
