Crowns are used to restore teeth that have been damaged, badly broken or heavily filled, in order to restore their appearance or strength. They in turn reduce the risk of heavily decayed teeth breaking.
To make a crown, the existing tooth is shaped and an impression is taken. A dental technician, who is responsible for matching the shade and shape to your natural tooth, then makes the crown. Crowns are made from a variety of different materials, such as porcelain or porcelain bonded to gold. Our dentists recommend porcelain crowns for the most natural looking and pleasing result.
