A dental crown fits over the remaining part of a tooth, helping to strengthen it and making it look like a whole, natural tooth once more. Modern crowns are much less bulky than older ones, making them feel more natural, and they also do not have the old-fashioned metal edge at the gumline.
There are a number of reasons why we may recommend them. Your tooth may be decayed and not strong enough to be filled any more, the top part of the tooth may have been accidentally damaged, or you may need one following root canal treatment. Crowns are also sometimes needed to help support a dental bridge.
