Before and after placement of crowns to cover heavily filled teeth.
Can be used to restore teeth when restoration with filling material is not sufficient.
Our aim is to blend the latest materials and modern techniques with attention to detail to achieve natural looking results that will last for many years.
Gone are the days of unsightly black metal showing around the gum edge of the tooth with the use of all ceramic crowns.
Why Is a Dental Crown Needed?
A dental crown may be needed in the following situations:
1. To protect a weak tooth (for instance, from decay or previous root canal treatment) from breaking or to hold together parts of a cracked tooth
2. To restore an already broken tooth or a tooth that has been severely worn down
3. To cover and support a tooth with a large filling when there isn’t a lot of tooth left
4. To hold a dental bridge in place
5. To cover misshaped or severely discoloured teeth
6. To cover a dental implant
Permanent crowns can be made from all metal, porcelain-fused-to-metal, all resin, or all ceramic. Your dentist will discuss with you the type of crown that would be suitable for the restoration.
