- 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.
Why Or When Do You Need A Crown?
