Crown

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.

A 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

Crowns are made of a variety of materials and new materials are being introduced all the time. Here are two main options:

Porcelain bonded to metal crowns: this is most commonly used. A precious metal base is made and layers of porcelain are then applied over it.

Porcelain: these crowns are not as strong as bonded crowns but they can look very natural and are most often used for front teeth.
