Crowns are a dental restoration fabricated to fit overtop a prepped tooth (or teeth). A crown is a very strong and protective “thimble”which allows a tooth to fully function. The appointment to have a crown usually involves 2 appointments but due to technology it can be done in a one appointment.
A dental crown has been referred to as a Cap. These two terms are interchangeable, but as technology has improved the proper term is a Crown. The materials are very natural looking and strong. The crowns are generally designed on a Cad-Cam system either by the laboratory or they can be done on in-office computer system.
The example we have used is actually 6 teeth across the upper anterior.
