Crowns can be used to replace the top part of a tooth when it has become badly damaged, but the root is still healthy.
There are several reasons why we may recommend crowns. Your tooth may be very decayed and not strong enough to be filled any more, the top part of the tooth may have been accidentally damaged, or you may need one following root canal treatment.
Our crowns are created at a dental laboratory by skilled craftsmen using the latest ceramic material, to ensure a perfect fit and a natural appearance. Today's crowns are much less bulky than older ones, and also do not have the old-fashioned metal edge at the gumline. In fact, they look and feel so natural even you will forget you have them!
