When a tooth suffers from decay or other damage, it is important to restore the tooth in order to prevent the damage from becoming more serious. One of the restorations our dentist in Bath, New Hampshire may recommend is called a dental crown. A crown, sometimes called a cap, is a tooth-shaped restoration that is designed to entirely encase the damaged tooth. By covering the tooth, starting at the gums, the dental crown returns the tooth to its ideal shape, structure, and size.
