A dental crown is a tooth-shaped, custom-made ‘cap’ that is placed over a tooth, either for protection or cosmetic enhancement. Dental crowns are used to restore a tooth’s shape, size and strength, as well as improving its overall appearance.
If you have a chipped or damaged a tooth, or you just wish to improve the aesthetic appeal of your smile, crowns may be the answer. Dental crowns offer a simple solution for restoring and protecting your teeth while creating a beautiful, natural-looking smile.
Dental crowns are used for many reasons, including:
Restoring a chipped, cracked or worn-down tooth
Protecting a weak tooth, especially root canal treated teeth
