A crown is needed to improve the appearance of a tooth, restore a tooth to its natural shape and to strengthen a tooth and the patient’s bite.
Protecting the surface
Dental crowns are often used when a filling has become too large or worn, your tooth is cracked or damaged or following a root canal. Crowns are cemented into place and cover the area of the tooth, becoming its new surface, improving the appearance and function of your tooth. This type of restoration is sometimes referred to as a “cap” and is made out of porcelain, metal or both. During your visit our trained doctors will take diagnostic x-rays and moulds of your mouth to assess and treat each patient accordingly.
