A dental crown covers or caps a tooth, restoring it to it’s normal size and shape often improving it’s appearance and restoring it to function where this has been lost. Dental crowns are a discreet way of restoring your smile if you have suffered damaged, broken or weak teeth to the point where a filling / composite bonding or veneer won’t be effective. Not only do they restore lost or damaged tooth tissue, they can also help to protect the remaining underlying tooth.
Dental technology is ever evolving with new materials and techniques becoming available all the time. Therefore, it’s not unusual for patients to request the modification of an existing crown (cap) and bridgework that looks tired, dull or has a visible underlying metal framework. Replacing such restorations with a newer, often all porcelain alternative, can be an effective way to enhance your smile.
