A dental crown completely covers a real tooth to create an aesthetically pleasing cosmetic result. Dental crowns are made from either gold, ceramic and strengthened ceramics such as Zirconia.
Dental crowns can be fitted where a tooth has broken, decayed or been damaged. In some cases we might recommend that dental crowns are used for aesthetic reasons in order to improve the appearance of the tooth and overall smile.
To fit a dental crown we reshape the tooth into a small peg-like shape in order that the crown can be cemented securely.
Dental crown treatments will normally be spread over two or possibly three visits as our dental technicians can take time to make the dental crown itself, and also for you to be happy with the fit and look of the dental crown.
