Many people who experience tooth decay and plaque buildup assume that their only option is a tooth extraction. Fortunately, that's where crowns come into the picture. Crowns can preserve your natural tooth by covering the affected area and preventing further damage from occurring. Some procedures that require dental crowns are as follows:
Chipped or broken teeth that are immediately visible as soon as the dental array is revealed. This situation could cause a gap in your teeth that requires a surface replacement.
A root canal treatment can also be the cause as it often requires a significant portion of the tooth to be removed to make way for the support structure and the cleaning process.
You may also need a crown to save weak and damage-prone teeth.
A crown may also be fitted for cosmetic reasons.
