Dental Crowns are constructed to restore teeth that are heavily filled, discolored, broken or malaligned.
Crowning involves removing a certain amount of the tooth surface and this is replaced by a colour matched ‘cap’ to mimic a natural tooth. Crowns can be constructed for both front and back teeth, and may be made from either porcelain, gold alloy or a combination of both. As well as improving the appearance of the teeth crowns can be considerably stronger and more durable than larger fillings.
A dental crown is an artificial restoration that fits over the remaining part of a prepared tooth, making it strong and giving it the shape of a natural tooth.
A crown is sometimes known as a ‘cap’. Crowns are an ideal restoration for teeth that have been broken, or have been weakened by decay or a very large filling. They can be made of porcelain or gold or a combination of these materials.

A dental crown could be used for a number of other reasons, for instance:
- you may have discoloured fillings and would like to improve the appearance of the tooth
- you may have had a root filling which will need a crown to protect it
- it may help hold a bridge or denture firmly in place.
