Why do I need a crown on my tooth?

Due to time, wear and trauma, our teeth can become weak or discolored. When a tooth is weakened it can be at high risk for breaking or experiencing further damage. In these cases, a crown is recommended to help protect the tooth from fracture and prevent tooth loss.  

Common situations resulting in a tooth being a candidate for a crown are:

  • Teeth with large cavities or large, older, fillings that are breaking down
  • Broken or cracked teeth, or teeth that have experienced trauma
  • Heavily worn teeth due to grinding or malocclusions (bad bites)
  • Teeth that are malformed or discolored
  • Teeth that have undergone root canal therapy
  • Those teeth experiencing cracked tooth syndrome
  • Patients with cosmetic concerns
