Dental crowns are among the many ways a dentist makes it possible to restore your teeth to their natural condition. However, these dental restorations are generally used when a tooth has a big filling exceeding the natural tooth structure.
Also, a dentist may advise you to receive a dental crown if you previously had canal treatment, or a combination of a root canal and dental filling. You can find a dental crown for cosmetic reasons also. For instance, you can get a gold dental crown, for an extra sparkle in your smile.
