A tooth can lose its normal shape and size for a variety of reasons including wear, fractures, cracks or broken-down old fillings. A crown covers your tooth to help restore its original shape and size. Crowns can also be used to make teeth stronger and look more aesthetic. Discolored or misshapen teeth can also be covered by a crown, as can dental implants.
Your dentist may recommend a crown for any of these reasons, among many others. Crowns play an important role in dental health, and if you are in need of one, please contact our office today.
