Dental Crowns may be recommended when a tooth becomes:
has a large failed restoration
needs a root canal treatment
A crown can provide the necessary strength to withstand chewing forces. A crown can be designed to have the same shape and color as the original tooth. There are many different types of crowns including porcelain fused to metal, all porcelain, Emax, or Zirconia crowns that could be fabricated depending on the location of the tooth involved, the esthetic involvement of the tooth, and the forces of occlusion of the patient.
