Teeth are often able to be restored with conservative composite fillings. However, when too much of a tooth’s natural structure is removed from large decay, failing restorations, or cracks, a crown or “cap” may be necessary. A crown may be needed to:
- Restore a tooth when it is unable to support a large filling
- Replace missing teeth for a bridge
- Protect a weak tooth from fracturing or restore fractured teeth
- Cover badly shaped or discolored teeth
- Cover dental implants
A crown essentially covers a tooth to restore it to its natural shape and size. This permanent covering fits over your original tooth to strengthen and improve the appearance of the tooth. Fitting a crown generally requires at least two visits to the office.
