Despite our best efforts to look after our natural teeth, most of us will find that we need some degree of dental work as we get older. One of the most common types of dental treatment needed is a dental crown. This is a hollow, tooth-shaped cap that is placed over the top of a damaged or decayed tooth, encasing it inside so that no further harm can come to it. The crown also restores the shape, size and function of the damaged tooth so that the patient can continue to smile, speak and eat normally.
