If you want a smile that's your crowning glory, you may need to a crown to cover a tooth to restore it to its normal shape and size. A crown can make your tooth stronger and improve its appearance. It can cover and support a tooth with a large filling when there isn't enough tooth left. It can be used to attach a bridge, protect a weak tooth from breaking or restore one that's already been broken. A crown is a good way to cover teeth that are discoloured or badly shaped. It's also used to cover a dental implant. If we recommend a crown, it's probably to correct one of these concerns. Your dentist's primary concern, like yours, is helping you keep your teeth healthy and your smile bright – literally your crowning glory.
