Dental CrownsA badly broken or heavily filled tooth can become weak & can ruin the appearance of your smile. A simple crown will work wonders for both the strength & appearance of your teeth.
A crown is like a crash helmet for your tooth, making it stronger in the long term as well as smoothing out the way it looks. Having a crown fitted involves your dentist taking an impression of your existing tooth so that the shape can be perfectly matched to your new crown for a comfortable, secure & natural looking fit. Crowns can be made from a variety of different materials, such as porcelain or porcelain bonded to gold, but West End Orthodontics dentists recommend porcelain crowns because they are the most natural looking & can be made completely indistinguishable from natural teeth giving you a fantastic smile.
New crown materials include Procera, which is a modern crown made of all porcelain, produced using cutting edge cad-cam technology to produce a crown that is extremely strong & looks great.
Whatever your choice of material, your West End Orthodontics dentist will explain the process to you in full & help you to get the best crown.
