Sometimes, a filling just isn’t enough. If your tooth is severely damaged from decay, root canal treatment, cracked fillings, or grinding, a dental crown may be recommended to restore the appearance, strength, and function of a damaged tooth.
Also known as a cap, a dental crown completely covers the prepared surface of your natural tooth. Your crown will be custom-made to fit comfortably and blend in with your smile. In addition to restoring a damaged tooth, crowns may be used to support a dental bridge, cover dental implants, or strengthen a cracked tooth.
