may be necessary if a tooth is heavily restored and showing
signs of leakage. It may also be needed if the tooth cracks
and is unrestorable with a filling. It acts like a jacket
over the remaining tooth, restoring strength, appearance and
function. Crowns will greatly enhance the appearance of heavily
filled, chipped, discoloured or misshapen teeth. In some cases
they can be used to correct a malalignment of teeth where
braces are not an option.
