Crowns

CROWNS

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

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

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

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

A crown is a type of dental restoration used to fix teeth that have been broken, weakened by decay or contain a very large filling.

 

Here is how it works:

  1. An impression is taken of the tooth that needs restoring.
     

  2. A crown is made in the dental laboratory to fit the tooth precisely and match the neighbouring teeth.
     

  3. The tooth is then prepared and the crown fitted securely on top.

A crown could be a good solution for you if you have some discoloured fillings and would like to improve their appearance. Crowns can be used to replace these to give you a more appealing smile. Additionally, if you have had root canal treatment you will need a crown to protect or cap the restored tooth, allowing you to eat and bite down on it as if it was a real tooth. Crowns are also used to anchor a bridge or denture firmly in place in the mouth.
