Cosmetic Dentistry at Woodville & Seaton Dental Clinic
A dental crown caps your tooth and restores its strength, shape and size.
Dental crowns cover the entire surface of your tooth from the gum line. It’s a prosthetic tooth that looks, feels and works like a natural tooth. It slots over the existing tooth root structure, and once in place is long lasting and durable.
A dental crown is used where the decay and damage is so severe that there isn’t enough tooth structure to support a filling, in-lay or on-lay. That’s where a dental crown becomes an option.
Dental crowns are a flexible and cost-effective solution for a variety of dental problems.
Dental crowns can often be a great alternative to root canal therapy when the cavities are too large to fill. They also provide support and strength when a tooth is too weak, and you want to avoid an extraction.
The type and colour of your crown depends on the tooth requiring treatment and your personal preferences.
Maintaining good oral hygiene will keep your crown healthy for as long as possible.
