A dental crown is a tooth-shaped "cap" that is placed over a tooth - covering the tooth to restore its shape and size, strength, and/or to approve its appearance. The crown, when cemented into place, fully encase the entire visible portion of the tooth that lies at and above the gum line.

A dental crown may be needed in the following situations:
A bridge is made up of two crowns for the teeth on either side of the gap - these two anchoring teeth are called the abutment teeth - and a false tooth/teeth in between. These false teeth called pontics and can be made from gold, alloys, porcelain, or a combination of these materials. Dental bridges are supported by natural teeth or implants.
