Crowns can be used to cover weak, chipped or broken teeth. This can strengthen them and improve their appearance.

Once prepared to shape, a digital scan is sent to our laboratory for the crown be custom made for you. They may be made of porcelain or gold. Sometimes, if a tooth has lost a significant amount of tooth structure, we can still restore it, using a post before fitting the crown. These are also custom made for you, from either white carbon materials, or gold. They are hidden beneath the crown structure and cannot be seen.

Advances in dental materials mean that modern crowns can be so life-like, they are hard to spot, even to a dentist!
