Depending on the type of treatment you have received for your dental problem, it might be necessary to:
Have your tooth restored to its original size and shape
Supply additional physical support for the treated tooth
Get a complete "makeover" on the affected tooth
For all of these cases, a crown is the most logical option. While inlays and onlays will help partially cover the tooth’s chewing surface and fillings take care of the empty interior of the tooth- crowns (or caps) completely cover every visible part of the tooth needing restoration. While some structure of your tooth remains, it is essentially “rebuilt” to look natural and at its best.
