Crowns

A crown is a custom made cap which strengthens and improves the appearance of a tooth. Crowns are suited for heavily filled teeth, broken or cracked teeth and to improve the integrity of a tooth following root canal treatment.

Traditionally crowns have been made out of gold or porcelain fused to metal. Both materials are satisfactory, however current state-of-the-art Zirconia (Ceramic Steel) porcelains allow metal-free crowns to be placed in situations where strength is required without compromising the restoration’s aesthetics.
