A dental crown is a cap placed over the tooth to conceal and protect it from further damage or decay. It also helps to restore the tooth’s strength, size, shape and its appearance - as it can hide chips and breaks.

There are different materials used for dental crowns:

1. Gold crowns. Gold crowns are generally advised for individuals with strong bite patterns, to be placed at the back of the mouth such as molars.  

2. Porcelain dental crowns. Are also preferred because when placed, it is lighter and natural-looking. 

3. All ceramic dental crowns. These crowns are the most popularly used today.
