What are dental crowns? A dental crown or cap as it is sometimes referred to, is an artificial restoration that fits over the remaining part of a prepared tooth, providing the tooth with its original natural shape and making it strong again.
When are dental crowns needed? Dental crowns are ideal for teeth that have been broken, or have been weakened by decay or a very large filling. They are made of porcelain or gold or a combination of both materials.
Here are a few more reasons why a dental crown may be required:
- You may have discoloured fillings and would like to improve the appearance of the tooth.
- You may have had a root filling which will need a crown to protect it.
- It may help hold a bridge or denture firmly in place.
