Dental crowns/caps are coverings that protect the surface of a tooth. They are placed directly over your original tooth. Crowns are used to protect teeth that are too damaged to be restored by composite fillings or other procedures.
There are different types of crowns, but the most popular are porcelain crowns that match the color of your teeth. Porcelain crowns are built to last for years, but they might need to be replaced at some point. One of the key benefits of porcelain crowns is their ability to restore your tooth’s natural appearance.
