When teeth become discoloured and broken down from decay or trauma, crowns can restore the esthetics and functionality of your smile.
Crowns are fabricated outside of the mouth, instead of being built in layers directly into the teeth like a filling. The dentist takes impressions of the teeth, and the crown is made to match the part of the tooth it will replace both in the contours and colour. The restoration is attached with dental cement.
Crowns are more effective than fillings in reinforcing teeth to withstand biting forces. If a tooth’s original structure is too compromised to support a filling, these indirect restorations can provide fantastic, long-lasting, beautiful results.
