A crown is a type of artificial dental restoration which covers all or a major portion of a tooth or dental implant. Most common indications for dental crowns include restoration of large amounts of missing tooth structure among others, as a consequence of tooth decay, tooth wear, dental trauma, or even just normal chewing habits.
Fabrication of dental crowns is an advanced restorative procedure which involves comprehensive understanding of biology, biomechanics and esthetics. It is preferable to have this procedure performed by a prosthodontist who has more training in aesthetic tooth treatments. Since many tooth restorations affect function as well as appearance, having a trained specialist perform cosmetic procedures is usually a good idea.
