A tooth is often restored with fillings of composite plastics. However, when filling is not possible due to not enough structure to hold a filling, a crown is necessary to do the restoration and meet more elaborate cosmetic requirements.
The crown is the dental restoration that can improve strength and appearance of teeth. The tooth-shaped cap is permanently cemented into place. The tooth is strengthened because it is covered from the outside with a ceramic material.
