Our teeth are composed of two main parts. The crown is the part visible above the gum. The root is the part below the gum that holds your tooth firmly in your jawbone. If the crown of your tooth becomes weakened by decay or fractures or if it is stained or uneven, it can be restored and strengthened by an crown. If you have any questions about crowns and how they are a benefit to you, speak with Dr. Kohli today!
