The Crown Of A Tooth Is That Part Which Is Visible In The Mouth when you smile. A laboratory constructed Crown Completely Covers A Tooth Above The Gum Line, making it stronger and protecting what is left of the natural tooth. Crowns Are generally Made up Of Metal Or Porcelain, Or you can have crowns that have Porcelain on the outside for appearance but With Metal Inside For Strength.
