Why do I need a dental crown?
It can be frustrating to hear that you need a dental crown, especially if you've typically had fillings in the past. You may wonder why a crown is necessary?
A crown is a restorative treatment to protect a tooth that has been damaged by more decay than a filling can repair since it covers the entire tooth structure. Crowns also help to rebuild a tooth that has had root canal therapy so it can provide all the function it had before. A crown is a restoration that completes a single dental implant and replaces a missing tooth. If you have an old filling that takes up much of your tooth, your dentist may also recommend a crown to restore your tooth and strengthen it if your filling is breaking down.
Crowns provide the aesthetics you want because they are made of high-quality porcelain and designed to match your neighbouring teeth. Since they closely mimic your tooth, crowns are also able to provide the function you had with your natural tooth while protecting the integrity of your root.
