Are dental restorations that protect damaged, cracked or broken teeth. Dental crowns often called caps as they sit over the entire part of the tooth that lies above the gum line.
A prosthodontist may recommend a crown as a treatment option to:
- Restore a heavily filled or broken tooth
- Protect cracks in teeth
- Reshape a poorly shaped tooth
- Cover severely discolour tooth
- Connect a bridge
