Crowns

Crowns, also known as caps, are constructed in a variety of ways according to individual need, typically using porcelain to resemble natural tooth appearance.

A crown is usually provided to fit over broken or damaged or worn-out tooth structure that is beyond the scope of filling in functional or cosmetic terms. By crowning, a the position of a misaligned tooth may also be improved.

Your dentist will need to prepare the tooth and take an impression (mould) to send to the dental laboratory where an individual crown will be constructed and returned for fitting, usually two weeks later.
