Dental crowns are a versatile treatment that help restore damaged teeth or improve the appearance of a tooth. The crown procedure can be used as a stand alone treatment or as part of another treatment, as in the case of dentures, implants and root canals. Modern dental technology has greatly improved the outcomes of dental implants. Not only are they durable and long-lasting, but they look just like a natural tooth. The crown is a tooth-shaped structure, comparable to a cap, that is placed over a tooth. The “cap” covers the tooth to improve its appearance and restore its shape and size.
