A crown is a tooth-shaped cap that covers a tooth to restore its function and appearance. Crowns are usually recommended for cracked, broken, heavily filled teeth, or teeth that have had root canal treatment. There are several different types of crown, and we can advise on the type that is most suitable for your tooth.
For those with heavily filled, weakened or darkened teeth due to root canal therapy, new porcelain crowns can be used to strengthen the teeth, while providing a beautiful smile. Unlike traditional crowns, porcelain ones do not possess the distinctive dark metal line or “blue halo” of old-style crowns. These new generation crowns are metal-free and closely resemble real teeth to give a natural effect. Feel free to ask us how this exciting technology can help create your new smile.
