What is a dental crown?

A dental crown is a dental restoration used to repair a tooth that has been damaged by decay or trauma. A tooth that is cracked or fractured can be repaired with a crown, as this restoration covers the entire tooth. A crown strengthens and protects the tooth from further damage, so the tooth can be restored to its natural appearance and function.
