 Crowns are an ideal restoration for teeth that have been broken, or have been weakened by decay or a very large filling. 

A crown is an artificial restoration that fits over the remaining part of a prepared tooth, making it strong and giving it the shape of a natural tooth. A crown is sometimes known as a ‘cap’. They can be made of porcelain or gold or a combination of these materials.

A dental crown could be used for a number of other reasons, for instance:

∗ You may have discoloured fillings and would like to improve the appearance of the tooth.

∗ You may have had a root filling which will need a crown to protect it.

∗ It may help hold a bridge or denture firmly in place.

∗ Porcelain veneers can improve the colour, shape and position of teeth.
