Crowns are often used to protect teeth that have been weakened by severe tooth decay. These restorations are also used to repair teeth that are broken, cracked or severely worn down.
When a tooth is mishapen or severely discolored, dental crowns can be used for cosmetic reasons to make your smile more unified and esthetically pleasing.
Crowns are also used in conjunction with other restorations such as implants and bridges. Dental crowns are used to cover the titanium screw of a dental implant to provide a natural looking appearance. Whereas when used with a dental bridge, the crown's purpose is the stabilize the entire restoration.
