Dental Crowns are small caps used to cover a problem tooth that can’t be fixed with a simple filling. Crowns can repair things like, a broken tooth, cracked or fractured tooth, and most any other type of issue that involve misshaped teeth. The cap actually restores the tooth’s shape and prevents any other major problems from happening. Often times, when a cavity is too large for a a filling, a crown can be placed on the tooth. The cap not only reshapes the tooth, but it also prevents it from any further decay. Another great thing – the crown actually strengthens the remaining part of a broken or fractured tooth, and greatly improve its overall appearance.
