Why Do You Need a Dental Crown?
While the reason to get a crown can be cosmetic in nature, for most people a dental crown is a procedure done to save the tooth.
Teeth will sometimes suffer significant damage but still have a sound underlying structure. When that happens, a crown is used to keep the tooth’s natural structure, but to replace its outer portion.
Enter the dental crown. A tooth crown can be created in the shape of your original tooth with a hollow inside.
This crown is then placed over — and permanently bonded to — your tooth.
