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

How does it work?

The tooth is prepared and an impression of the tooth that needs restoring is taken.

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

The crown fitted securely on top.

A crown could be a good solution for you if you have discoloured, failing 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 the tooth, allowing you to eat and bite down on it as if it was an untouched tooth.
