On occasion, a patient presents with a tooth that requires more repair than a dental filling can provide. For example, you may have a tooth with so much decay that there is not enough healthy tooth structure to support a filling. Other patients may have a deep crack that threatens the integrity of the entire tooth. In these instances, one of the dentists at 21st Century Dental & Sleep Center in Irving, TX, may recommend a dental crown.
