Dental Crown Overview

  • A dental crown is a laboratory-produced restoration that envelopes the entire fractured or decayed tooth. The crown is cemented or bonded to the tooth for a natural appearance. 
  • When getting a dental crown, the tooth is reduced in size prior to placement. 
  • Dental crowns can be made of gold and other metals, resin, porcelain fused to metal, and all ceramic often made with CAD/CAM technology today.
