A crown is a restoration that is placed over the affected tooth to amend its shape, size or strength.
Crowns are typically used to cover a heavily filled or broken tooth as well as to provide strength after a root canal treatment. Crowns are also used to cover implants. They can also have an aesthetic use to cover stained or chipped teeth.
For many years, traditional metal-based crowns have been used to strengthen or rebuild teeth. Today, Porcelain Crowns are now an effective aesthetically pleasing option. They are made to match the exact colour, texture and translucency of your natural teeth.
Crowns are used in both restorative and cosmetic cases, and during your consultation, this may be just one of the procedures we recommend to enhance your smile and improve your dental health.
