Dental crowns are a type of dental restoration used to repair teeth that have been broken, weakened by decay or have a very large filling. Protection of the remaining part of a damaged tooth is important to minimise the risk of fracture and subsequent need for extraction. A crown is designed to fit over the remaining part of a prepared tooth, making it strong and giving it the shape of a natural tooth. Crowns are also tooth coloured, giving the restoration a more natural appearance so it fits in seamlessly with the rest of your teeth. At Hadley Wood Dental, we’ve had many years experience fitting dental crowns that are expertly fitted and long-lasting.
Had Root Canal Treatment?
If you have had root canal treatment crowns are needed to protect or cap the restored tooth, allowing you to eat and bite down on it as if it was a real tooth. Crowns are also used to anchor a bridge or denture firmly in place in the mouth.
