What Is a Dental Crown?
A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cover placed over a tooth and secured with dental cement. Crowns are generally used to improve the strength or appearance of the tooth and are used to protect broken or worn down teeth. They are also used to cover dental implants, a dental bridge, or a tooth with a large filling. A dental impression usually takes place in order to fabricate the crown.
Most crowns are made from gold, another metal, or porcelain:
- Porcelain crowns are aesthetically more appealing and very natural looking
- Gold or other metal is usually used on the back teeth, and is easier to use than porcelain and requires less tooth to be drilled away

There are numerous benefits of a dental crown procedure, including:
- Replacing large fillings when there is little tooth structure remaining
- Protecting a weak tooth from fracturing
- Restoring a fractured tooth
- Attaching a bridge
