What are crowns (caps)?
A dental crown is a cap placed over your tooth to return it to proper form and function. It is a great way to replace a large amount of missing or damaged tooth structure and can protect your natural teeth allowing you to keep them for longer. Crowns can be made one at a time or, if you have more than one tooth that needs to be repaired, they can be made in groups (ie. the front six teeth, one full dental arch, all teeth in the mouth).
