Do you need to get a dental crown on one of your teeth? Are you wondering why you can’t just get a filling instead?
Here are some reasons why your dentist might choose a crown to restore your tooth:
A crown is the treatment of choice for teeth that are significantly damaged and unable to function normally. Fillings are not an option in those cases because there is not enough tooth structure left to hold the small restoration into place. It might simply fall off.
If your dentist has told you that you need a crown to fix your tooth, then don’t put it off. A crown is a much better option than not restoring your tooth and having to get your tooth pulled later! Call your dentist to discuss your crown restoration options.
