are full coverage restorations that are used to cover a tooth that is likely to break or is too broken down to be restored with a filling. They are most common after root canal treatment or when a large filling wears out. The larger the cavity that has to be treated, the more likely a crown will be needed. Even after a filling is put in a large cavity, the tooth can likely break.
Keep in mind that the jaw muscles are the strongest in the human body and teeth are subjected to tremendous pressures. Crowns are placed over the weakened tooth, providing strength and protecting the tooth against breakage. An already broken or cracked tooth is far more serious and much more difficult to treat. Crowns help prevent this as well as making a nice smile.Timmons Family and Cosmetic Dentistry
