A dental crown covers a weakened tooth to the gum line, and prevents the tooth from falling apart. Its purpose is also to improve the appearance of the tooth and restore it to its normal shape, size, shade, and function.
Crowns may be made from entirely porcelain or from porcelain over metal. Besides strengthening a tooth, crowns can sometimes be designed to provide rest and attachment for partial dentures. Lastly, crowns are also used to restore dental implants.
