Crowns

Crowns

Teeth can become damaged by dental decay, accidents, discolouration, and prior dental treatments. 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.  A crown is often recommended when more than 50% of the tooth structure is broken-down, when the tooth is vulnerable to cracking, or when it simply cannot be restored with conventional dental materials.
