Dental crowns are tooth-shaped cap that is placed over a tooth to restore its shape, size, strength and improve its appearance. The crowns when cemented will encase the complete visible portion of a tooth that lies above the gum line.

For children, a crown may be used on primary teeth to:

Crowns are made of various materials, of which some of them are listed below:
Porcelain bonded to precious metal

Most crowns are made of this material. A precious metal base is made and porcelain is applied in layers over it.

Porcelain

The crowns are made up of porcelain and are not as strong as bonded crowns. They look very natural ad most often used for front teeth.

All-ceremic

This type of crown is suitable for all areas of the mouth. It is a metal-free alternative, which can add strength as of a bonded crown.

Glass

These crowns are very natural and can be used anywhere in the mouth

Gold-alloy crowns
