Restorative Dentistry » Crowns
A Crown can improve the appearance of misshapen or discoloured teeth.
A Crown is a restoration that covers a tooth to restore it to its normal shape and size. Adding strength and also improving the appearance of a tooth. Sometimes a crown is referred to as a 'cap'.
The dentist prepares the tooth by removing most of the outer surface and leaving an inner core. A temporary tooth is fitted while your permanent crown is being constructed by the laboratory.
Once made, the temporary crown is removed and your new crown will be fixed in place.
When a tooth is missing there are usually a number of solutions available and your treatment options should be discussed with your dentist.
