Teeth that have been damaged, worn, or suffered major decay can be totally restored to their original beauty and functionality with a crown. Crowns, known also as ‘caps’, are ideal not only for enhancing the appearance of a damaged tooth, but for protecting the remaining root and tooth soft tissue as well.
A crown is a tooth shaped covering cemented into place over an existing tooth or used to cover a dental implant.
When your tooth shows signs of decay, our skilled dentists at Mansion House Dental Practice can produce top quality crowns with the help of our excellent dental laboratories, whose expert technicians are able to produce beautifully natural looking restorations.
What is a crown
Crowns are used to build up a tooth that has been chipped or broken or has become too weak to chew with. Crowns are made of porcelain or precious metals, or a combination of these materials. Crowns are also used to cover discoloured fillings and to add strength to a weakened tooth. Ceramic crowns can produce near perfect aesthetic results that are indistinguishable from natural teeth.
