It would be wonderful if you never had a dental problem. The reality is that almost every needs restorative care at one point or another.
1. Large Cavities
For most cavities, a filling is sufficient. When the decay is too great, however, a crown can be a better and more durable solution.
2. Dental Injuries
Broken and cracked teeth can leave you exposed for an infection. Fixing those teeth with crowns can avoid painful consequences.
3. Missing Tooth
If you have lost a tooth, you should replace it for reasons we won’t get into today. Adding a crown to a dental implant gives you a complete artificial tooth.
