Dental crowns are a dental restoration that fits over all sides of an existing, often damaged tooth. Dental crowns have both cosmetic and restorative uses and are one of the most common dental treatments used today for maintaining a healthy smile.
Dental crowns can be used to strengthen a tooth that has had a root canal procedure or secured to a dental implant for a natural missing tooth replacement option. They may also be recommended for:
Damaged or decayed tooth
