A crown is a covering that surrounds the entire tooth surface, restoring it to the desired shape and size. A crown protects and strengthens tooth structure that cannot be restored with fillings or other types of restorations.
Although there are several types of crowns. Ceramic (tooth colored) are the most popular. Crowns are highly durable and will last many years. But, like most dental restorations, they may eventually need to be replaced. Ceramic crowns are made to match the shape, size, and color or your teeth giving you a natural, long-lasting beautiful smile.
