Crown

 

A crown is a tooth shaped cap that is placed over a tooth, covering the tooth to restore its shape and size, and/or to improve its appearance.

 

The crowns, when cemented into place, fully encase the entire visible portion of a tooth that lies at and above the gum line.

 

Dental crowns may be needed in the following situations;

 

 

  • To protect a weak tooth from breaking or to hold together parts of a cracked tooth
  • To restore an already broken tooth or a tooth that has been severely worn down
  • To cover and support a tooth with a large filling when there isn't a lot of tooth left
  • To hold a dental bridge in place
  • To cover a dental implant
  • To cover a misshapen or severely discoloured teeth
