All too often, a tooth can become endangered by weakness due to significant decay, root canal treatment, wear, or injury. In order to reinforce and preserve the tooth, a crown is often recommended. A tooth is prepared for a crown by removing a thin outside layer. This creates room for a durable covering to be made of attractive ceramic, which can be cemented over the tooth and fortify it from the outside.
Some traditionalists like to use gold for their crowns, however, most dentists these days prefer zirconia or lithium disilicate crowns.
