A crown is recommended to protect and strengthen the tooth after root canal therapy. While additional dental procedures may seem daunting, completing the treatment plan is essential for your oral health and overall well-being.

Here are some key points to consider:

1. Protection: A crown provides an extra layer of protection to the weakened tooth, helping to prevent fractures and further damage. This is especially important for molars and premolars, which endure significant chewing forces.

2. Longevity: By placing a crown, we can significantly prolong the lifespan of the tooth. Without proper protection, there’s a higher risk of the tooth becoming compromised over time, potentially leading to more extensive and costly procedures in the future.

3. Aesthetic Appeal: In addition to its functional benefits, a crown can also improve the appearance of the tooth, restoring its natural shape and color. This can enhance your smile and boost your confidence.

4. Comfort: A well-fitted crown can improve the comfort and functionality of the treated tooth, allowing you to chew and speak with ease.
