A crown (or cap) is a covering that encases the entire tooth surface, restoring it to its original shape and size. A crown is most commonly used to protect and strengthen a tooth structure that cannot be restored with fillings or other types of restorations.
However, crowns especially porcelain crowns can also be used to cap teeth for cosmetic reasons. Although there are several types of crowns, porcelain crowns are the most popular, because this material resembles your natural tooth enamel very closely.

In the long-term, inlays and onlays can give restorations a better fit, aesthetics and strength.
