When do I need a Crown?
If you have a big BROKEN PART of a tooth but the base is sound and above the gum, a Crown or full cover ‘cap’ will be placed.
Crowns are made of many materials, most of them are made of only porcelain and some are metal inside (for strength) and porcelain outside (for aesthetics). A crown can make your tooth stronger and improve it appearance.
Crowns last many years, usually longer than big fillings.
