The visible part of a tooth is called the crown, if this is broken, weakened or heavily filed an artificial crown is fitted by the dentist to protect and resolve the original crown, and improve appearance.
The crown of a tooth is that part which is visible in the mouth. Crowns are made from different materials including metals and ceramics.
They are strong and look and feel like your natural teeth, as the colour and shape can be matched to yours.
The strength of the tooth underneath plays a role in how long your crown lasts, but with good care this can be a long time.
