A dental crown is a tooth-shaped "cap" that is placed over a tooth - covering the tooth to restore its shape, size, strength, and/or to improve its appearance. The reasons you might need a crown are:

* Your tooth lost considerable tooth structure due to accident, fracture, or large decay;

* Your tooth has a root canal treatment, and the tooth structure becomes weak;

* To improve appearance.

Materials used for crown can be:

- Full metal such as gold;

- Porcelain fused to metal;

- All-ceramic or all-porcelain.

All-ceramic or all-porcelain dental crowns provide the best natural color match than any other crown type and are more suitable for people with metal allergies. The material of All-ceramic crowns has improved dramatically over the years, which makes them good choices for both front teeth and back teeth.

(please discuss the pro and con with Dr. Liang regarding to the material of choice, or see more cases by clicking photo gallery.)
