We like dental multitaskers. And a dental crown is just that, offering the perfect balance of function and beauty. This hardworking restoration is a cap that covers the entire portion of your tooth that’s above the gumline. It is a perfect match in color and shape to your natural pearly whites. And it protects and strengthens a tooth that’s severely damaged, decayed, or that’s undergone a root canal. Crowns are also used to cover healthy teeth in order to support a dental bridge.
