Also known as ‘caps’ Crowns are a type of restoration in dentistry that completely caps a damaged tooth.

Unlike a filling which only fills in a hole, crowns essentially become the tooth’s new outer surface.


Often this procedure will be performed if the tooth has been extensively chipped, cracked or decayed so badly that the appearance and shape is compromised.

In cases like these the remaining tooth is prepared and a crown is created by a lab and fit over the prepared tooth structure and cemented in place to cap the tooth.
