Dental crowns restore damaged, cracked or broken down teeth. Having a crown added to an existing tooth or teeth strengthens your existing, damaged tooth so as to preserve it and prolong its functionality. Dental crowns can also be referred to as caps.
When would you need a crown for your teeth:
If there is significant tooth decay, large fractures in the tooth, a large cavity, a damaged dental implant for a missing tooth, after root canal treatment, if you grind your teeth or have unhealthy lifestyle or for cosmetic reasons.
