A crown (or cap) is a covering that fits over the entire tooth surface and restores the tooth to its original shape and function. A crown protects and strengthens tooth structure that cannot be restored with fillings or other types of restorations. Crowns can be used to restore teeth that have had significant decay or tooth wear, fractured or broken teeth, and to add strength to teeth that have had root canal treatment.
