Dental crowns are tooth-shaped caps that are placed over a tooth to protect them from decays and other dental problems. They help in restoring the affected tooth back to its shape, size, and function. It not only helps in making the teeth strong but also makes it as functional as natural teeth. Crowns come really handy in case you have a dental cavity that is too large for a filling. They are also great for teeth that are cracked or worn down. They also work great to protect restored teeth that have undergone root canal treatment and can also cover-up discolored teeth.

Once the permanent one is ready, our dentist would place it in your mouth and make all the necessary adjustments. If you are happy with the crown, then only the crown would be cemented in the right place.
