The crown of a tooth is the part which is visible in the mouth. An artificial crown is used to repair and protect damaged or weak teeth. A crown is usually recommended where the damage is too extensive to be repaired by a simple filling or inlay. Crowns can also be used to improve the appearance of discoloured or crooked teeth. Crowns are made of many different materials including metal, porcelain and metal and porcelain.
