Dental crowns, when glued into place, are aimed at completely enveloping the observable portion of teeth located above the gum line. Composite fillings inlays/onlays, versus crowns, are restorative treatments that focus on filling-in or masking a part of the tooth. Dental crowns essentially envelop the whole visible part of a tooth, effectively rendering the crown into the tooth's aesthetically-improved surface.
Crowns are used to repair cracked, chipped or decayed teeth, to fortify teeth, and they offer a manner in which patients can better the aesthetic look of teeth. Crowns are fabricated either out of porcelain / ceramic, gold alloy, or a mix of both. Dental crowns are also known as "dental caps".
