Dental crowns are tooth-shaped caps attached over your existing teeth for cosmetic or restorative purposes. The dentist shaves the existing tooth down to a small stub so the dental crown can be attached over it. This may be done to cover up the tooth’s deformities (cracks, discoloration, etc) or to protect it from injury after a root canal procedure. They completely cover up the visible parts of the tooth until the gum line.
