A crown is an artificial restoration that fits over the remaining part of a prepared tooth, making it strong and giving it the shape of a natural tooth.
A crown is sometimes known as a ‘cap’. Crowns are an ideal restoration for teeth that have been broken or have been weakened by decay or a very large filling.
A dental crown could be used for a number of other reasons, for instance: you may have discoloured fillings and would like to improve the appearance of the tooth, you may have had a root filling which will need a crown to protect it or you may require a crown to help hold a bridge or denture firmly in place.
What is a crown made of?
Crowns can be made from a variety of materials. They can be metal (gold or silver colored), a combination of the metal with porcelain (tooth-colored), or made entirely of tooth-colored ceramic (such as E-max) for the most natural appearance. We can discuss which options are available to you and what the benefits of those choices will be.
