Fillings vs. crowns: You may have a tooth that needs a filling, but depending on the level of damage, a crown may be a better option. When the structure of the tooth has been too weakened, a crown can provide the structure and stability your smile needs.

Cracked and broken teeth: In some cases, a cracked or broken tooth can benefit from the placement of a crown. If we catch the crack early enough, a crown can help you avoid a more invasive extraction. Unlike a broken bone, teeth don’t heal after a crack. A crown can provide the protection needed to keep the crack from getting bigger.

Holding bridges in place: If you’re looking to avoid a dental implant, you may choose a dental bridge to replace the missing tooth. A crown will be used on the teeth to either side of the missing tooth so that the bridge will have something to hold on to.
