A crown is a tooth shaped cap that fits over a problem tooth to improve strength, size and appearance. Crowns are indicated in multiple situations including being used to protect a tooth with a large filling when there is little tooth structure remaining, to protect a weak tooth from fracturing, to restore a fractured tooth, to restore a dental implant, to cover a discolored or poorly shaped tooth, and to cover a tooth that has had root canal treatment. Crown placement offers many benefits including long term durability, protection from further decay, infection and cracking, improved chewing and talking, and a healthier smile.
