Crowns are indirect restorations covering the entire visible portion of the tooth and are ideal solution for teeth that have been broken or weakened by decay or a very large filling. They protect the tooth form breaking down further and are also used with bridges and implants to keep them firmly in place. They can be used to align crowding or protruding teeth, close gaps or lighten tooth colour.

Crowns can be made from gold, other metal alloys, porcelain, porcelain fused to metal and composite. Porcelain or ceramic crowns are the best choice for a natural cosmetic look. They require the same level of care and attention as your natural teeth.
