What are crowns?

Dental crowns, are tooth-shaped coverings designed to encase the entire visible portion of a tooth above the gum line. They are custom-made restorations crafted to mimic the natural shape, size, and color of your existing teeth. Crowns are typically used to restore damaged teeth, providing both functional and cosmetic benefits. They are commonly made from materials such as porcelain, porcelain-fused-to-metal (PFM), metal alloys, or all-ceramic materials, each offering unique advantages in terms of aesthetics, strength, and durability.
