A dental crown is an artificial tooth that fits over a tooth, almost like a hat. It completely covers the existing tooth, all the way down to your gum line. Dental crowns are a very versatile dental treatment that can be used to fix a wide variety of dental problems, improving the strength, shape, size, as well as the appearance of your tooth.

The crown is permanently bonded to your existing tooth using a very strong adhesive. This allows the crown to function with all the strength and comfort that you would have from a natural tooth. Depending on the material chosen, the crown may be able to match your existing teeth so that no one but you will know that it’s not your natural tooth.
