Crowns — often called caps — cover teeth and restore them to their appropriate shape and size after large fillings, fractures, and/or weakening forces, such as intense grinding. In all of these cases, crowns not only cover teeth, but provide needed strength as well. Crowns can also be used to attach bridges, cover dental implants, restore seriously discolored or misshaped teeth, and can even serve as a preventive measure to protect a tooth in danger of breaking.
