When a tooth is severely decayed and can no longer be restored with a filling, a crown is placed to save the tooth structure.
A crown is a 'cap' that encases the tooth in a protective material to improve the strength and the appearance of the tooth.
It is custom-made in a laboratory, and bonded or cemented to the tooth.
You may need a crown if you have a tooth with a root canal treatment, a large restoration or a broken tooth.
What material is a crown made of?
- All-metal, such as a full gold crown.
Dr. Alia Rijeb will suggest the type of crown material that fits the aesthetic and longevity of the tooth and the whether the tooth is anterior or posterior.
