When a tooth needs added protection due to a large filling, injury, root canal therapy or other issues, a dental crown may be used. When teeth are badly discolored or misshapen, sometimes veneers are used, and often crowns are the general dentistry treatment of choice. They are also used to protect weak teeth. Root canal therapy can leave a tooth weak and brittle; it then becomes a good candidate for a crown. A variety of materials are used to create crowns. Some are made of stainless steel, others from gold alloy and still others are porcelain fused to metal, resin or ceramic.
