When are dental crowns a great option for me?

There are many reasons why a dental crown or "cap" may be an excellent treatment option for you. Crowns can be used to protect your tooth, to fix a problem (such as a chip or a cavity), or to improve the appearance of your tooth.

A protective cap for your tooth

A dental crown is a protective covering or “cap” that covers the entire tooth. Dental crowns can make teeth stronger and replace any missing tooth structure.  

Reasons your dentist may recommend a crown:

  • When a back tooth is cracked
  • When a tooth has large areas of decay or cavities
  • When a front tooth has a large chip in it
  • To protect a tooth after root canal treatment
  • To improve the shape or shade of your tooth
