Sometimes a tooth cannot be filled and instead needs to be covered for protection with a crown/cap. Crowns sit on top of your tooth, a little like a hat covers your head.
If you have a worn tooth that’s in need of a little TLC, a crown can give you the confidence to smile and eat the foods you enjoy.
Crowns are custom-made caps that fit over the top of a decayed, damaged, cracked or broken tooth, making it look great again and improving the health of your smile. A crown is strong and will look and feel exactly like your natural teeth, we will take time to match the colour and shape to your own teeth.
A crown is a good solution if you have some discoloured fillings and would like to improve their appearance of your smile. Also, if you have had root canal treatment you will need a crown to protect or cap the restored tooth, allowing you to eat and bite down on it as if it was a real tooth.
