One of the best ways to cover up a tooth that has been negatively impacted from decay and other problems like breaks and chips is with a dental crown. A crown is a ceramic cap that fits over the affected tooth, and functions just as a natural tooth would. Crowns are even color matched and custom-made so that they will fit perfectly and blend in with all of your other teeth. Because they are also functional, you will be able to eat with it and brush it just like real teeth.
Crowns are custom-made to match the shape of your teeth and the way you bite down. The affected tooth is smoothed down into a uniform shape, and roughened so that the crown will fit onto it and seal, making it semi-permanent.
