Reasons to Get a Crown

Crowns may become necessary for a variety of reasons, although some are more common than others. For instance, one common reason for getting a crown is having a root canal.

When a tooth reaches advanced stages of decay, the bacteria may infect the inner part of the tooth. To remedy this situation, your dentist cleans out the infected area and fills it. Although this prevents pain and removes tooth decay, it may also weaken the overall structure of the tooth.

As a result, crowns often follow root canals to ensure the tooth remains intact and strong enough to withstand pressure from chewing. Here are some other common issues that lead to crown placement:

  • Large fillings that have broken or worn out
  • Broken cusps or excessive wear on the tooth
  • Cracks or compromised tooth structure
  • Receiving one or more dental implants

Any time your tooth’s structure becomes weakened or vulnerable, it’s always better to remedy the situation with a reinforced cover (or dental crown) before more damage occurs.
