A Crown protects a tooth with a large filling from breaking, allowing you to chew comfortably and with confidence. It is a custom made cover over your own tooth, restoring function and aesthetics. Crowns can be made of:
- All Porcelain – a very natural aesthetic appearance, achieving a translucency and opalescence, particularly useful for front teeth.It avoids “metal margins” seen after the gum recedes over time, and can chemically bond with your tooth enamel making it strong. Also reduced hot/cold sensations due to lack of electrical conductivity.
- Porcelain Bonded to Metal
We will discuss the material, shape, size, position and colour of the crown or bridge at the consultation, depending on your needs. Contact us for more information.
