What are dental crowns?

A Dental crownis a fixed prosthetic device that is cemented onto existing teeth or implants. It is a tooth-shaped “cap”that is placed over a tooth—to cover the damaged tooth completely. A dental crown will restore the tooth(s) shape and size, strength and improve its appearance. It can be used for:

  • To protect a weak tooth (for instance, from decay) from breaking or to hold together parts of a cracked tooth
  • Covering a dental implant.
  • Restoring a fractured tooth
  • Attaching a bridge
  • Covering a discolored or a poorly shaped tooth.
  • Covering a tooth after root canal treatment

Dental crowns are made from different materials including: stainless steel, gold alloys, porcelain-fused-to-metal, all-ceramic or all-porcelain. Porcelain or ceramic crowns are appropriate for people with metal allergies, they also provide a better natural color match than any other crown types.
