Crown:  A crown completely caps, or encircles, a tooth or dental implant.  Crowns are often needed when a large cavity threatens the ongoing health of a tooth.  They are typically bonded to the tooth using a dental cement. Crowns can be made from many materials, which are usually fabricated outside of the mouth and cemented at a subsequent appointment.  Crowns are often used to improve the strength or appearance of teeth. As new technology and materials science has evolved, computers are increasingly becoming a part of crown fabrication, such as in CAD/CAM dentistry, which allows for the crown to be completed in a single visit.
