What is a Crown?

A crown is a cover or "cap" your dentist can put on a tooth. The crown restores the tooth to its normal shape, size and function. The purpose of a crown is to make the tooth stronger or improve the way it looks.

 

Why do I need a crown?

You may need a crown if you:

• have a cavity that is too large for a filling

• have a missing tooth and need a bridge

• need to cover a dental implant

• have a tooth that is cracked, worn down or otherwise weakened

• have had root canal treatment-the crown will protect the restored tooth

• want to cover a discolored or badly shaped tooth and improve your smile!
