What are crowns?
When a tooth is really damaged, say, after a sports injury, a filling may not be enough to fix the problem and this is when dentists might suggest fitting a crown. This acts as a protective covering for the tooth, a bit like a safety jacket you could say.
Not all crowns (also known as a dental cap) are chosen just to fix and repair teeth; sometimes they’re used to improve the overall look of the tooth as well. We’ll help you choose the best crown for you – whether you need it to repair damage (with gold or metal crowns) or to simply give you a prettier smile (for this, we’ll use porcelain) – and you’ll be smiling again in no time.
