Dental crowns can make a huge difference to the way your smile looks and your self-confidence, as well as helping you to chew without difficulties.

Today’s crowns are extremely realistic in looks and feel. In fact, modern crowns are such an improvement over the older ones that we are seeing an increasing number of patients ask to have their crowns replaced as part of a smile enhancement. 

Crowns are used to cover the top, visible part of teeth which have broken, or have been weakened by decay or large fillings. They restore the tooth to its normal shape and size, strengthening it and improving the way it looks. 

They are often recommended after root canal treatment to help strengthen the tooth and protect the root filling, or to provide a secure foundation for bridgework. 

Crowns can be made of a variety of materials, but most modern ones are made of porcelain or ceramic. 

Crowns require a great degree of skill and craftsmanship to make them fit perfectly and be a natural match to your other teeth, and their cost reflects this. However, they are an excellent investment, and with proper care will continue to benefit you for many years to come.
