Dental crowns are an ideal way to rebuild teeth which have been broken, or have been weakened by decay or a very large filling. A dental crown fits right over the remaining part of the tooth, making it strong and giving it the shape and contour of a natural tooth. Dental Crowns are sometimes also known as ‘Caps’. An ‘Anterior Crown’ is a term used to describe a crown fitted to the front eight teeth. Dental crowns can also be used to improve the appearance of damaged teeth or worn teeth.
