Health Tip: You Don't Have To Be Royalty to Need a Crown

Cosmetic denture covers a multiplicity of ills

(HealthDay News) -- If you want a super smile, you may need a crown to cover a tooth and restore it to its normal shape and size, according to the American Dental Association.

A crown can make your tooth stronger and improve its appearance.

It can cover and support a tooth with a large filling when there isn't enough tooth left. It can be used to attach a bridge, protect a weak tooth from breaking or restore one that's already broken.

A crown is a good way to cover teeth that are discolored or badly shaped, and it's also used to cover a dental implant.
