The dental crown is a kind of restoration that covers the visible part of the tooth from all sides and is fixed with a special cement. Unlike a seal that restores one or more tooth surfaces, the crown covers the tooth completely. It is used to restore teeth that are significantly destroyed by caries, cracked, broken, or discolored. A dental crown is used for several reasons:
- To restore the anatomical shape
- To restore the function of the tooth
- To strengthen the tooth
- To improve the aesthetic appearance of the tooth
The main goal of the dentist is to recreate the natural appearance of the crown. It is very important to choose the right color for the material, the shape, the level of your bite, and the height of the other teeth. Any of these factors affect the aesthetic appearance of your teeth. After the completion of the restoration procedure, your teeth will not only look more beautiful but also their functional capacity will increase.
Modern restoration of teeth,
offers a large selection of materials and methods of prosthetics. Installing the dental crown over the tooth is one of the oldest and proven methods of prosthetics.

A dental crown can be made from all metal (such as gold or another alloy), stainless steel, all resin, porcelain-fused-to-metal, or all ceramic.
