If you want a spectacular smile, you may need a crown to cover a tooth and help it regain its normal shape and size. A crown can strengthen a tooth and improve its appearance.
A crown can help strengthen a tooth with a large filling when there is not enough tooth left to hold the filling. Crowns can also be used to hold bridges, prevent a weak tooth from breaking, or restore one that is already broken. The crown is a good way to cover teeth that have lost color or are not properly shaped. It is also used to cover a dental implant.
If your dentist recommends a crown, it is likely to correct one of these problems. The dentist’s primary concern, like yours, is to help you maintain healthy teeth and a bright smile.
