A dental crown is used when a tooth is broken or decayed to such an extent that fillings aren’t able to repair the problem. The crown or “cap” is able to provide covering around the damaged or decayed tooth to strengthen it. Crowns can also be used to cosmetically change the appearance of your smile. Tooth colored crowns are the most common.
