Crowns fit neatly over unsightly or broken teeth, providing complete coverage and restoring strength, shape and appearance. They offer an aesthetic restoration for broken, decayed or discoloured teeth, or those with large fillings.
Made from porcelain, ceramic or metal alloys, crowns can also be used on teeth that have had root canal treatment or secured to dental implants to replace missing teeth. They are matched in size, shape and colour to sit comfortably alongside existing teeth.
As long as crowns are looked after carefully, by avoiding very hard or chewy foods and thoroughly cleaning teeth, they can last for years.
