Dental crowns are objects made out of different available materials that cover up a problematic tooth. These coverings or wraps are shaped into an actual tooth to give an esthetically pleasing look. Usually such a procedure is necessary when a particular tooth is nearing decay or in certain instances when a tooth is broken or has severe shape or color inconsistencies. Dental crowns are usually administered by general dentists and in some case by cosmetic dentist professionals. There are many different types of materials available if one should need a dental crown.
