Dental crowns are a cosmetic treatment for teeth which involves encasing your own tooth with a cap to restore or improve its shape, size, strength and appearance.
When is a dental crown suitable?
To restore an already broken tooth, or teeth that have been worn down
To cover and support a tooth with a large filling when there isn’t a lot of the original tooth left
To hold a dental bridge in place
To protect a weak tooth from breaking or to hold parts of a cracked tooth together
To cover a dental implant
To improve the appearance of your smile
Crowns can be made of a variety of different materials and new materials are being introduced all the time.
