A root canal is a major procedure involving deep cleaning inside the canals of the tooth caused by decay or damage that has irritated the gums and nerves of in the surrounding area of the tooth. Once this part of the procedure has been completed, a crown will be placed on top of it to protect your tooth and prevent additional damage.

As a basic staple in the repertoire of the dental profession for many years are dental crowns. They are perhaps one of the most well-known and commonly performed procedures.
As you’re probably aware, a conventional dental crown (to put it simply) is a method of restoration in which a tooth-shaped cap is placed over a damaged or decayed tooth. It effectively covers the entire tooth that is exposed above the gum line. The purpose of this crown is not only to improve the patient’s overall oral health by restoring and strengthening the tooth, but to provide the patient with a smile that is aesthetically pleasing and functional as well. While the conventional dental crown remains a popular and sought-after solution, the process of receiving a crown has not always been the most desirable experience.
