When Are Dental Crowns Necessary?

Dental crowns are artificial teeth, often used to replace or restore your natural teeth. 

Key takeaways:

– A dental crown sits on top of the permanent post used by a dental implant to replace a missing tooth.

– A deep cavity may need a filling and a dental crown to restore and protect the tooth.

– A broken tooth may be restored with a crown.

Your dentist can discuss the benefits of a dental crown at your next dental appointment.

“Dental crowns have allowed people to have natural-looking, secure smiles, and, in many cases, retain their natural teeth.”
