What is a Dental Crown?

The crown of a tooth is that part which is visible in the mouth. (It is often referred to as a ‘cap.’)

A dental crown is used to protect or restore a weakened, broken or heavily restored tooth.

Crowns can be made of many different materials such as metals and ceramics.

Different options and choices are available and these will be discussed with you prior to your treatment appointment. This is so that you can make the best choice to suit your needs.
