Naturally, a tooth is made out of enamel and dentine, enamel being the strong outer shell and dentine being a softer inner layer. Together, the two layers are very strong to withstand everyday biting/chewing, as well as expansion and shrinkage from hot and cold temperatures in the mouth.
As you get large fillings, cracks, decay on your teeth; the structural integrity of your teeth also diminishes and therefore the risk of a tooth fracture increases. A dental crown is often the best way to save a tooth and strengthen it.

Think of crowns like a protective helmet over weakened teeth. Besides a reduction in fracture risk, a dental crown can also improve the aesthetics of teeth by improving the shape, colour and length of your teeth. It can also close gaps between teeth and improve chewing capabilities. Bridges connect two crowns together.
