A dental crown is a permanent covering that is cemented over a tooth in order to restore its strength and improve its appearance.
Crowns can be placed over weak or fractured teeth to prevent further damage.
They are also used to support large fillings and to protect a tooth following root canal surgery.
We would normally recommend a crown if your tooth is too damaged to support a filling, or if it is cracked or broken.
With good hygiene and dental care, crowns can last for years.
Been a while since you've seen a dentist?
You're not alone if you have found it difficult to get back to the dentist for quite a while (and we're certainly not going to judge you).
The thing is... It's really important that you look after your teeth and our job is to give you the best possible care that we can.
Our dentists are super friendly and extremely good at what they do.
