A crown (or cap) is a covering that encase the entire tooth surface restoring it to its original shape and form. A crown protects and strengthens tooth structure that cannot be restored with fillings or other types of restorations. There are several different types of crowns. Most of them are highly durable and can last many years, but like most dental restorations, they may eventually needs to be replaced. Porcelain crowns are the most popular ones, they are made to match the shape, color and contour of your teeth. Please discuss details with your dentist.
