What are dental crowns?

Crowns can be used to cover and protect damaged or weak teeth. A crown is a type of dental restoration which completely caps a tooth or dental implant and is typically bonded to the tooth using dental cement.The tooth will be reshaped, to ensure that once the crown is fitted, it remains the same size and shape as the natural teeth. It may also need to be built up with a filling first.

Caring for your crown

The crown can last for many years if good oral hygiene is maintained, depending on the condition of the original tooth. Additional care should be taken to keep the crown and surrounding area clean. Your dentist or dental hygienist will recommend an appropriate home care regime.

Are crowns noticeable?

Your dentist will match the crown as closely as possible to the other teeth, in size, shape and colour.
