Benefits of crowns
Because crowns cover the whole tooth, they protect the teeth from further cavities or fractures, and are easy to clean and maintain. They are incredibly strong and, if looked after properly, they can last a lifetime. Plus, they look and feel just like your own teeth, giving you a beautiful, natural looking smile.
Before fitting the crown, we’ll remove any weakened parts of your tooth and then shape and prepare so that it is ready to hold the crown. Once the permanent crown is ready, we will then check it for fit, shape, bite and colour before cementing it in place.
