Why do I need a dental crown instead of just a filling?

You will need a dental crown if your cavity or filling takes up more than a third of the tooth’s surface. The dental crown will help support and strengthen the remaining tooth structure and protect it from cracking.

You will not need a dental crown if the cavity or filling is small. Your tooth will be able to support a small filling.

For more information on a dental crown or other restorative services, please contact Dental Professionals.
