What is a crown or cap?

Sometimes a tooth has such a big cavity or filling that it will become weak and break if it is not reinforced. This is when a crown is needed. Crowns fit over the top of your tooth and look and work just like your other teeth. They last an average of 25 years, but just like your other teeth, they require regular brushing and flossing to prevent cavities around the crown.
