Why do I need a crown?

There are a variety of reasons a tooth can benefit from being covered by a crown.  Some of the most common reasons include cracks or fractures, severe/extensive decay, loss of tooth structure due to placement of large fillings, root canal treatment, and esthetic or tooth position problems. 
 
Any tooth that is fractured or has cracks present will benefit from placement of a crown. 
If the tooth is already broken, the crown will replace missing tooth structure and prevent more fractures in the future.  If the tooth is cracked, but no pieces have broken off yet, the crown will hold the tooth together and prevent it from breaking.  When a tooth fractures, it may break in a way that we can fix, but it may break in a way that cannot be repaired and the tooth must be extracted.  Teeth can also break at inconvenient times.  Placing a crown before the tooth fractures allows you to plan for the procedure and schedule it at a time that is convenient for you instead of having to stop everything to deal with a broken tooth.
