The anatomical area of your teeth, usually covered by enamel, is referred to, as crown. The crown is visible in the mouth. If a part of your tooth gets chipped or broken, ask your dentist to apply an artificial crown. The crowning can be done with the help of cement or stainless steel.
Crowning of your teeth will help you to completely encircle or cap your tooth. The crowning procedure usually requires two visits. Firstly, your dentist will create a dental impression of your tooth to fabricate the crown. The crown will then be inserted onto your tooth at your next visit to the dentist.
