A full coverage dental crown is a way of restoring a badly damaged tooth and it will protect the entire structure of the tooth.
Our dental crowns look and feel like natural teeth. They are durable and strong and designed to last you for many years.
Why would I need a dental crown?
Sometimes a tooth can be damaged to the extent that its strength is compromised, such as:
- when there is a large filling in the tooth it can cause deflection and stress on the remaining tooth structure as the filling expands and contracts due to biting forces.
- if you have had a root canal treatment it may lead to drying of the tooth, causing it to become more brittle, prone to fracture and discolouration.
- when a tooth is fractured or cracked you may need a crown to hold it together and prevent further tooth loss.
A crown may also be your best option if are unable to achieve the look you desire with other methods.
