A crown (cap) is an artificial restoration that fits over the remaining part of a prepared tooth, making it strong and giving it the shape and look of a natural tooth.
Crowns are an ideal way to repair teeth that have been broken or have been weakened by decay. Crowns can be made from a variety of different materials including porcelain, All-ceramic, Gold-Alloy, etc.
When having a crown fitted, a layer of the outer surface of the tooth is removed leaving an inner core. The amount of the tooth that is removed will be the same thickness as the crown. Once the tooth is shaped the dentist will take a series of impressions which will be given to a dental technician to make the crown.
