Why do I need a dental crown?

At Randwick Dental Care, we always present all treatment options available, along with what you can expect from each, to help you make a confident decision for your smile. If one of our dentists has recommended a dental crown, they will also discuss why a crown would work better for your situation rather than a filling or other type of restoration.

Common Uses for Dental Crowns

Broken tooth – If you break or crack a tooth, a dental crown will protect the compromised structure by completely covering it.

Root canal therapy – When we remove the infected tissue and nerve fibres from tooth canals, it makes the tooth more susceptible to breaking down. A dental crown will add many years of reliable protection and comfort.

Rebuilding teeth – Chronic teeth clenching and grinding eventually wears down teeth, which can make them sensitive and damage the bite. Rebuilding worn teeth with dental crowns restores the function and appearance of the teeth.

Cosmetic dentistry – Covering teeth with tooth-coloured dental crowns can improve the appearance of your smile by altering the shape and shade of the tooth.
