Dental crowns are caps that are lab-fitted over your original tooth.  It is generally made from metal with an overlay of porcelain, ceramic or gold alloy.  Generally most people want a natural looking smile and prefer the metal with an overlay of porcelain or ceramic crowns to match the colour of their surrounding teeth.  

Crowns can repair and strengthen teeth.  It is a highly recommended treatment for broken down teeth, cracked teeth, weakened teeth and teeth that have had root canal treatment.  It can improve the function, longevity and aesthetics of the tooth.

Normally it take 2 dental visits to get the crown fitted.  However, if the tooth needs further treatment, we will discuss with you beforehand.
