Porcelain crowns are very similar to veneers in that they can be used to transform the appearance of an unaesthetic smile into a beautiful, natural smile that you can be proud of.
In addition, crowns are extremely durable and they are usually used when there is a lot of the original tooth missing: this may be due to severely worn or broken down teeth where function needs to be improved in addition to the aesthetic appearance.
A dental crown is a tooth-shaped ‘cap’ that is precision bonded over the damaged tooth to protect it. We use the procedure to help restore fractured, very heavily filled or damaged teeth whilst ensuring the crown matches the rest of your smile. A dental bridge can also be made to restore your smile and is used to replace one or more missing teeth.
Benefits of crowns:
- They are extremely durable and long-lasting
- They are made to look natural and to blend in with your surrounding teeth
- They can replace missing teeth (a ‘bridge’ can be 3 or more linked crowns used to restore unsightly gaps)
Our porcelain dental crowns can rebuild and reconstruct your teeth, while also making them stronger than ever before. If you have worn down, broken or heavily filled teeth, please call us to book your free consultation to find out how we can reconstruct your smile and your appearance using crowns.
