crowns are often called "dental caps" which cover and encase
the tooth on which they are cemented. Since, dental crowns
cover over the entire visible aspect of a tooth, a dental
crown if effect becomes the tooth's new outer surface.
Dentists rely on dental crowns as a means to rebuild broken
and decayed teeth to their original shape, a way to strengthen
teeth, and method by which the cosmetic appearance of teeth
can be improved. Crowns can be made of porcelain, gold, or
a combination of both.

is fused between two porcelain crowns to fill in the area
left by a missing tooth. The two crowns holding it in place
are attached onto your teeth on each side of the false tooth.
