What is a Crown?

A crown is a cover or “cap” your dentist can put on a tooth. The crown restores the tooth to its normal shape, size and function. The purpose of a crown is to make the tooth stronger or improve the way it looks.

How is the Crown Placed?

  • The dentist prepares the tooth
  • An impression is made 
  • Temporary crown is fabricated 
  • The dentist or a laboratory technician then uses the model to help make the crown
  • When the new crown is ready, the dentist places it in your mouth and makes the necessary adjustments
