Crown

The part of the tooth covered by enamel and not covered by the gum. A “dental crown” also refers to an artificial tooth used to cover and support a tooth with a large filling when there isn’t enough tooth left. A dental crown can be constructed of porcelain, ceramic or various alloys. Crowns can be used to cover a dental implant, attach a bridge, protect a weak tooth from breaking, or restore a tooth that is already broken. A crown may also cover a tooth that is discolored or badly shaped.

Root Canal

Space inside the root of a tooth that contains nerves and blood vessels. “Root canal” also refers to a special dental procedure used to save a tooth with a diseased nerve. After a dentist removes the pulp of the diseased tooth, the root canal is cleaned and sealed off to protect it. Then the dentist places a crown over the tooth to make it stronger.
