If you want a smile that’s your crowning glory, you may need a crown to cover a tooth and restore it to its normal shape and size.
A crown can make your tooth stronger and improve its appearance. It can cover and support a tooth with a large filling when there isn’t enough natural tooth structure left to support the filling. It can be used to attach a bridge, protect a weak tooth from breaking or restore one that’s already broken. A crown is a good way to cover teeth that are discolored or badly shaped. It’s also used to cover a dental implant.
