Crowns are usually needed if you have a damaged or weakened tooth that can’t be fixed with a filling. Sometimes people have crowns for cosmetic reasons, but they’re mainly due to a lack of remaining tooth structure.
What is a dental crown?
A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that’s placed over your tooth. It’s a permanent solution, and once it’s fixed in place, a crown should look, feel and function just like any other tooth.
