A crown is a restoration that covers a tooth to restore it to its normal shape and size, strengthening and improving its appearance.

Crowns are necessary when a tooth is broken down and fillings cannot help. When a tooth is cracked, a crown can hold the tooth together to seal the cracks so the damage does not worsen.

Restoring a tooth with a crown is beneficial when:

  • There is not enough natural tooth remaining to provide support for a filling
  • To attach a bridge
  • To protect weak teeth from fracturing
  • To restore fractured teeth
  • To cover badly shaped or discolored teeth
