A dental crown is a restoration which serves many functions within the mouth and has been used by dentists to strengthen and protect teeth for many years.
Crowns are permanently fixed in place and are designed to look and feel just like your natural teeth.
Often used when a tooth has been damaged by decay or trauma, the affected part of the tooth is carefully removed and a crown is attached in its place. This helps to strengthen the tooth and also ensures you can keep your natural tooth.
Dental crowns are also used for the following:
- To support a dental bridge on either side of a gap in your teeth
- Used when a tooth needs more support than a filling can provide
- To replace a misshapen or discoloured part of a tooth
A dental crown can be made of different materials, however, the most popular choice with patients are made from ceramic or porcelain so they blend into the mouth.
Your dentist will take impressions of your teeth so that our laboratory can fabricate the exact size and shape of your dental crown. This will be fixed into place at your next appointment.
