Crowns are designed to repair cracked, chipped or broken teeth and minimise the risk of further fracturing. Our goal is to ensure the crown matches the rest of your teeth as closely as possible for a natural, unnoticeable finish.
Often known as caps, crowns are relatively easy to install compared to veneers, and significantly less invasive than implants. They simply adhere on top of the existing damaged tooth. Although permanent, most crowns need replacing eventually and we can provide both brand new crowns and replacements when old crowns become damaged or weakened.
Sometimes crowns are used to provide extra strength to teeth that have had a root canal. These teeth tend to become weaker and more brittle after having decayed pulp removed from the root. A crown helps to seal in the filled root canal while protecting the tooth against fracture.
If you’d like existing crowns to be checked or replaced, or you have an injured tooth that requires protection, get in touch to arrange a consultation. We’ll advise whether a crown is right for you and provide you with a natural-looking repair.
