A dental crown helps to preserve the functionality of damaged teeth, protect a cracked tooth, or restore functionality of a tooth with excessive decay. A dental crown does this by encasing the tooth requiring a crown with a custom-designed material.

A tooth that has extensive decay or has undergone a root canal will be a candidate for a dental crown as the damage is too extensive for veneers, direct composite bonding or other conservative treatments. A dental crown can either be used to restore a damaged tooth or as a lifelike tooth replacement.
