A crown is a new outer shell for a tooth. In simple terms the tooth is shaved down and shrunk (like a Russian doll). An impression is made of this prepared tooth and sent to the laboratory. A temporary crown is then made a placed for a week or two until the new crown is ready to be cemented onto the tooth.

A crown can be made of porcelain, metal layered with outer porcelain, gold or other materials. Although this sounds quite destructive, a crown does have its uses and can help to restore and maintain a badly destructed tooth. Crowns used to be used a lot for cosmetic purposes but this has recently fallen out of favour.
