A crown is an artificial restoration that fits over the remaining part of a prepared tooth, making it strong and giving it the shape of a natural tooth.
A crown is sometimes known as a ‘cap’. Crowns are an ideal restoration for teeth that have been broken, or have been weakened by decay or a very large filling. They can be made of porcelain or gold or a combination of these materials.
A dental crown could be used for a number of other reasons, for instance:
you may have discoloured fillings and would like to improve the
appearance of the tooth
you may have had a root filling which will need a crown to protect it
it may help hold a bridge or denture firmly in place.
An impression is taken of the tooth that needs restoring.
A crown is made in the dental laboratory to fit the tooth precisely and match the neighbouring teeth.
The tooth is then prepared and the crown fitted securely on top.
Strengthens remaining tooth structure.
Functions like a real tooth, so you can bite and chew as usual.
