A crown is a protective covering that encases the entire tooth and restores it to its original shape and size.  A crown is selected in situations where fillings or other restorative materials may not adequately protect the tooth.  Crowns are fabricated by a dental lab which utilize stronger and more durable materials which will have longer lasting results.
