Dental Crowns

Porcelain & Front Tooth

A dental crown is a restoration that can be used for a number of purposes. One of the most common uses of a dental crown is to restore a tooth that is significantly damaged or decayed. The crown is custom-made to fit over the entire tooth, starting at the gum line, in order to restore the tooth to its original shape and size. Dental crowns can be made of gold, porcelain or porcelain fused to metal; porcelain crowns are popular because they match the natural colour and appearance of your teeth.

Anchor and attach a dental bridge
Cover and complete a dental implant
Enhance the beauty of your smile
Strengthen a tooth that is fractured or weak
Support a large filling when little natural tooth structure remains
