Dental Crowns

Dental crowns are a like a ‘helmet’ or ‘cap’ that is hand-made to fit your existing tooth perfectly. It is designed to protect teeth that are prone to breaking or from further fracture which may result in the tooth being extracted.

Dental crowns are for patients who have:

Root canal therapy: following root canal therapy the tooth is more fragile than a normal healthy tooth and a crown is usually placed over the tooth to protect the root canal from bacterial invasion and the tooth from fracturing.

Large dental fillings: large fillings can cause the tooth to be susceptible to fracture. A dental crown can help to protect the remaining underlying tooth structure from breaking.

Severe tooth decay: Cosmetics: dental crowns can be used to change the shape and also shade and aesthetics of teeth to enhance the appearance and change your smile.
