A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that Dr. Barry Malkiel places over a tooth. It covers the tooth to restore its shape and size, strength, or to improve its appearance. When our dentist cements the crown into place, it fully encases the entire visible portion of a tooth that lies at and above the gum line. Call Barry E. Malkiel, DDS if you want to learn more about our dental crowns in Lawrenceville, Georgia.
