A crown may be needed to: Restore a tooth when it is unable to support a large filling Attach bridges Protect a weak tooth from fracturing or restore fractured teeth Cover badly shaped or discolored teeth Cover dental implants A crown essentially covers a tooth to restore it to its natural shape and size. This permanent covering fits over your original tooth to strengthen or improve the appearance of the tooth. Fitting a crown generally requires at least two visits to the dentist's office.
