Crowns

A crown is a restoration that covers, or caps, a tooth entirely to restore it to a healthy shape and size.

Its pur­pose is to strength­en or improve the appear­ance of a tooth. Porce­lain crowns are strong, long-last­ing and they look great. Vir­tu­al­ly indis­tin­guish­able from your nat­ur­al teeth, crowns restore func­tion and aes­thet­i­cal­ly enhance your smile by fit­ting snug­ly over a tooth.

A Crown is nec­es­sary when a tooth is in poor con­di­tion. This is the case when a tooth starts to crack, break, is decayed or dis­eased. These con­di­tions could be due to; large fill­ings, the age­ing of teeth, the grind­ing of teeth, improp­er bite, poor oral hygiene or after Root Canal Ther­a­py.

For many years, tra­di­tion­al met­al-based Crowns have been used to strength­en or rebuild teeth. Through the lat­est advance­ments in Cos­met­ic Den­tistry, Porce­lain Crowns are now an effec­tive aes­thet­i­cal­ly pleas­ing option.
