Image0015A tooth can lose its normal shape and size for a variety of reasons. A crown covers your tooth to help restore its original shape and size. Crowns can also be used to make teeth stronger and look better.

Crowns have a variety of uses. In some cases, for teeth that require a large filling, there isn’t enough tooth remaining to keep the filling in place. A crown can strengthen the tooth and maintain the filling. Crowns can also protect teeth that are weak, or help fix ones that are broken. Discolored or misshaped teeth can be covered by a crown. Our children's crowns can be tooth-colored or stainless steel depending on the condition of the tooth and its position in the mouth.

Your dentist may recommend a crown for any of the above reasons, among many others. Crowns play an important role in dental health by preserving the life of primary teeth.
