A crown is a type of dental restoration used to fix teeth that have been broken, weakened by decay or have a very large filling.
The crown fits over the remaining part of a prepared tooth, making it strong and giving it the shape of a natural tooth. It will also be tooth coloured, giving the restoration a more natural appearance so it fits in with the rest of your teeth.
If you have some discoloured fillings and would like to improve their appearances, crowns can be used to replace these to give you a more aesthetic smile.
Broken, weakened by decay or teeth with very large fillings and be restored with crowns that are natural looking, shaped like your own teeth.
Porcelain crowns are much stronger than big composite restorations.
Crowns are also used to anchor a bridge or denture firmly in place in the mouth.
