Dental crowns are fitted to the top of teeth for a variety of reasons:

– Crowns can correct a misaligned bite, repair damaged teeth, protect a root canal filling and are also used on dental implants and bridges fitted to replace missing teeth.

– Crowns can be fitted for cosmetic reasons such as disguising discolouration or yellow teeth.

– Your dentist will discuss whether a dental crown is right for you.

Dental crowns аlѕо serve аѕ аn alternative tо pulling thе loose, chipped оr cracked tooth оr replacing іt wіth a prosthetic tooth.
