Dental Crowns or “caps” are used to restore teeth which have suffered extensive damage due to decay or fracture. Crowns are also used to improve the appearance of teeth.
High quality Dental Crowns are both beautiful and natural-looking. Crowns can be made of porcelain, porcelain and metal or all metal. Location, esthetic and functional demands are considered when selecting which type of crown to use.
A Dental Crown generally covers over most of a tooth whereas a veneer will only cover over the front portion of the tooth.
