Curious how dental crowns work? Unsure why you would need or want one?

Dental crowns are used to restore, protect, or act as a tooth. If you suffer from extreme tooth sensitivity, have an oddly shaped or discolored tooth or even a very large cavity, a dental crown can be used in most cases to restore the tooth to its natural state both shape and size.

Dental crowns are also great for helping to maintain the integrity of a cracked or broken tooth. A crown is also good at shielding your tooth from bacteria and helping to prevent any cavities. Crowns are also good at covering an area that is too big or weak that would put stress on the tooth
