A dental crown is a snugly fitting tooth shaped cap that is permanently cemented on a tooth. It is used as a long-term solution to restore a tooth’s shape, size, strength and improve its appearance.

A dental crown is used to:

  • Restore a broken tooth
  • Cover a misshaped or severely discoloured tooth
  • Repair a severely worn down tooth
  • Protect a weak tooth from breaking (particularly after a root canal treatment)
  • Hold together a cracked tooth
  • Support a tooth with a large filling
  • Cover a dental implant
  • Hold a dental bridge in place

Dental crowns can be made of porcelain and metal or ceramic material. If you require a dental crown, our dentists will discuss with you options that meet your individual needs.
