Is a Dental Crown Necessary?

Crowns provide a protective shield for teeth that are unable to endure regular biting force. Their bolstering effect aids in prolonging the lifespan of compromised teeth, thus decreasing your susceptibility to infection or tooth loss. Furthermore, we can position crowns over dental implants as a replacement for individual missing teeth.

Dental crowns may be necessary if you:

  • Have a severely decayed tooth that cannot be restored with a filling alone.
  • Have undergone a root canal treatment and need to protect the weakened tooth.
  • Have a cracked or fractured tooth that needs structural support.
  • Have a large filling that needs reinforcement.
  • Have a misshapen or discoloured tooth that requires aesthetic improvement.
  • Need to anchor a dental bridge to replace missing teeth.
  • Are considering dental implant restoration and require a crown to cover the implant post.

At Smile Place Dentistry, our experienced team will evaluate your dental condition and recommend the appropriate treatment, including dental crowns, to restore the health, function, and beauty of your smile. Contact us today to schedule a consultation and determine if dental crowns are necessary for your specific dental needs.

A Bridge may be recommended if you’re missing one or more teeth. Gaps left by missing teeth can eventually cause the remaining teeth to rotate or tilt into the empty spaces, resulting in a bad bite. The imbalance caused by missing teeth can also lead to gum disease or other disorders.

Bridges are commonly used to replace one or more missing teeth. They span the space where the teeth are missing. Bridges are cemented to the natural teeth or implants surrounding the empty space.


Our dentists use implants to create support for a crown that acts as a brand new tooth. The advantage of implants is that they bond with your jaw, so they’re incredibly strong and ensure that you can eat and chew just as you would with your own natural teeth.

Implants stand alone, so none of your other teeth are compromised in any way, and they can be used to create just one tooth, or all of them.

Implants can also be a solution for dentures that don’t fit properly.

Benefits of Dental Crowns & Bridges


Among the various dental treatments known for their longevity, dental crowns stand out for their endurance. This is due to the fact that dental crowns are crafted from exceptionally strong and superior-quality materials.

Dental bridges also offer remarkable durability, comparable to that of dental crowns, and boast a high success rate. Beyond their longevity, both dental bridges and crowns are notably cost-effective.


Dental crowns effectively shield older, fragile, and weakened teeth by serving as a protective layer. Crowns and bridges not only help prevent future tooth loss by securing the teeth together but also fortify the jawbone through constant stimulation akin to that provided by natural teeth. This continuous stimulation contributes to strengthening the jawbone.

Dental crowns can also be used to cover implants and secure heavily damaged teeth in place. They aid in confining damages such as limiting cracks to a small area and preventing them from reaching the nerve. Dental bridges and crowns also prevent the common issue of teeth shifting due to missing teeth, thereby maintaining stability and proper alignment.


Incomplete breakage of teeth often results in soreness and pain, with bleeding being a common symptom. This could be due to various factors such as accidents, injuries, or simply a tooth falling out.

Dental crowns and bridges serve as effective solutions to alleviate this pain. They also help eliminate the sensitivity caused by the loss of a tooth.

  • Crowns, Bridges and Implants

What is a dental crown?

A dental crown is a custom-made cap that is placed over a damaged tooth to restore its shape, size, strength, and appearance. It encases the entire visible portion of the tooth above the gum line.

When are dental crowns necessary?

Dental crowns may be necessary in various situations, including extensive tooth decay, root canal-treated teeth, cracked or fractured teeth, large fillings, misshapen or discoloured teeth, and to support dental bridges or implant restorations.

How long do dental crowns last?

With proper care and maintenance, dental crowns can last for many years. The lifespan of a crown depends on factors such as oral hygiene practices, diet, and overall dental health. Regular dental check-ups can help monitor the condition of the crown and ensure its longevity.

Do I need a crown, a bridge or an implant?

These treatments differ according to their purpose. A dental crown is used to restore a damaged tooth, a dental bridge is used to replace missing teeth by anchoring artificial teeth to adjacent healthy teeth, and a dental implant is used to replace a missing tooth root with a titanium post and crown.

The choice of treatment depends on the specific dental condition and individual needs of the patient, which can be determined through a thorough evaluation by a dental professional.

Can dental crowns be replaced?

Over time, dental crowns may require replacement due to normal wear and tear or changes in the underlying tooth structure. Your dentist can assess the condition of the crown and recommend a replacement if necessary.
