Dental crown also referred to as a “cap” is used to entirely cover a damaged tooth and restore functionality of a tooth. A crown not only strengthens the tooth, but it can dramatically improve appearance, shape and alignment.
Crowns are made by first taking an impression of the teeth, and then send to a dental laboratory where your crown will be custom made to fit your mouth and match your natural tooth color. A fitted, temporary crown is created during this visit to temporarily protect the tooth while your permanent crown is getting ready. Once completed, the crown is bonded to the tooth using dental cement.Crowns are very durable and can last a lifetime with extra care and good oral hygiene.
