Is A Crown Really Necessary? How to Avoid Getting a Crown

“You need a crown,” we’ve all heard at the dentist’s office, and it’s something to dread. Crowns are both invasive and costly as a solution for restoring a tooth when a filling isn’t enough.

However, with improved methods and equipment now available, leading Eugene dentists are able to utilize less intrusive approaches before considering a crown. If you want to repair a tooth but avoid crowns, keep reading because you’ll find out what you need to know.

What exactly is a crown?

A crown is a covering that fits over the stump of a tooth. The cap restores the tooth’s structure, support, and beauty.

If the original tooth is cracked, chipped, or broken; if it requires a filling that’s too big for the tooth to support; if it has too much decay or is too worn; or if it’s severely discolored or misshapen, dentists will use crowns. A tooth is also capped to protect a dental implant or support a bridge.
