Dental crowns are a way of restoring a badly damaged tooth. It protects the structure of the tooth by providing full coverage of the tooth. Dental crowns are made from strong materials – ceramic, zirconia or gold, that are designed to last many years. They also have the advantage of looking and feeling like a natural tooth.
Reasons to get a dental crown:
- The tooth has a large existing filling that is not providing any support to the remaining tooth structure.
- The tooth has had root canal treatment. Root treated teeth are more brittle, and the dental crown protects the tooth.
- The tooth has a crack, the dental crown helps hold the tooth together.
