A crown is a type of dental restoration used to fix teeth that have been cracked, broken, weakened by decay or heavily filled. We use handmade porcelain crowns to completely cover the visible part of your tooth, making it strong and giving it the shape of your natural tooth. Your porcelain crown will be tailor-made to match the colour of your other teeth, giving it a natural appearance that blends in with the rest of your mouth.
Crowns can be used to replace discoloured fillings to give you a more aesthetic smile. Crowns can also be used to protect or cap a restored tooth after root canal treatment , giving it strength so you can bite and chew. Additionally, crowns can be used to anchor a bridge or denture firmly in place in your mouth.
