Dental crowns can be a good option for people who have a badly damaged or decayed tooth. They are used by a dentist to restore the structure of the tooth, allowing it to function and feel like your natural teeth.

Key takeaways:

– A crown is a protective cover to a weakened tooth and can also hold together a fractured tooth.

– A crowned tooth retains a nerve and there can be increased sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures.

– You will need a crown after undergoing a root canal and possibly after a large dental filling.
