Restorative Dentistry/Aesthetic Crowns
A crown is necessary when there is extensive decay or abnormal shape due to decay or injury. A crown can make the tooth stronger and improve its appearance by restoring its shape and size. For front teeth a white crown is used and for back teeth an all stainless steel crown is indicated in most cases. If you prefer, for baby molars an all white crown (zirconia) or one with white facing can be provided; however, such a crown is not as durable as just stainless steel.
