A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap on top of a damaged tooth that restores its strength, function, and look.
It is a common fix for a tooth that is worn out, decayed, or weakened beyond repair, or just badly discolored.

Benefits of dental crown
Nearly a real tooth
A dental crown has definite benefits:
- Functional - A crowned tooth allows chewing and speaking as if it were natural.
- Natural - Shape, size, and even color are matched to adjacent teeth, for a natural look.
- Durable - A crown lasts typically 5-10+ years, often much longer.
These benefits require you to care for the tooth cap as you should any other tooth.
