A dental crown is a type of restoration that is usually recommended to protect and strengthen a damaged tooth. It is designed to surround your existing tooth structure, restoring function and appearance.
There are several cases where a dental crown would be an appropriate option:
- Severe decay or infection has compromised the strength of the tooth
- Root canal treatment has left a tooth weak and brittle
- A tooth has already had multiple fillings and needs protection
- Teeth grinding has worn down a tooth and impacts your dental bite
