Crowns are a restorative procedure that is used to improve the shape of your teeth or to strengthen them. Crowns are most often used for broken, worn or teeth that have parts destroyed by tooth decay.
A crown is a “cap” cemented on an existing tooth that normally covers the portion of your tooth above the gum line. In effect, the crown becomes the new outer surface of your teeth.
