What is a crown?

Crowns are an ideal way to rebuild teeth which have been broken, or have been weakened by decay or a very large filling. The crown fits right over the remaining part of the tooth, making it strong and giving it the shape and contour of a natural tooth. Crowns are sometimes also known as ‘caps’.

Patient B above, had old fashioned metal based crowns and was not happy with them as he felt they made him look old. The patients crowns were replaced with porcelain based crowns, 8 crowns at the top and 4 at the bottom resulting in younger and fresher looking teeth.
