Ceramic Crowns

 

Crowns restore, preserve functionality and improve the appearance of your teeth. Crowns are commonly known as caps because they sit on top of a prepared tooth.

The type of Crown we use are Ceramic Crowns which provide the ultimate combination of aesthetics and strength, giving you a natural looking and long-lasting restoration. They are made entirely from a hard, tooth-coloured porcelain material using the latest techniques and technology.

Before and after ceramic crown restorations
Before and after ceramic crown restorations
  • If your tooth is chipped, damaged, discoloured etc but is still strong, Veneers may be a more appropriate option as they are less invasive/destructive to the tooth than a Crown.

    Composite bonding can also be used to rebuild cracked or chipped teeth. Composite is a sturdy tooth coloured material used for white fillings that a dentist can manipulate into cracks or chips to improve the appearance of teeth.

  • It depends on how well you look after them. Crowns will require the same amount of hygiene care and attention as your natural teeth.
