Dental crowns are used to cover and protect an affected tooth. These porcelain caps are made to very closely resemble the appearance of a natural tooth. Crowns are used to improve the following problems/conditions:
Worn or broken tooth
A crown can be used to restore the form and function of a tooth that has been broken or worn.
A cracked or weak tooth can be restored, and protected from even more damage, with a dental crown.
Tooth with a large filling
A tooth with a large filling may become weak, but it can be protected and restored with a crown.
Single missing tooth
A single missing tooth can be replaced with a dental implant attached to a dental crown.
Misshapen or severely discoloured tooth
A crown can cover a misshapen or severely discoloured tooth, restoring its proper form and function.
