Through damaging their teeth during childhood, or a natural breakdown of the teeth’s enamel causing them to weaken and crack more easily, many people seek restorations of their teeth by looking to cosmetic dentistry and dental crowns. Dental crowns, also known as caps, can help to strengthen existing teeth while restoring their functionality, and protect any damaged, cracked or broken down teeth.

Dental crowns are generally sought after when a tooth has undergone significant decay, caused by smoking, bad dental hygiene and other lifestyle causes, and there’s not enough tooth structure to support a filling or inlay in the tooth. Alternatively, if a tooth has been damaged or fractured, and cannot be built up with composite bonding techniques, or even following a root canal treatment in order to help strengthen the tooth, there are many reasons why a person may be in need of dental crowns.
