Crowns are recommended to cover teeth that are damaged, broken or worn down. In some cases where your existing teeth are abnormally shaped or you are unhappy with the general appearance of them they can be recommended for a smile makeover. Crowns can be sculptured to match your existing teeth, close gaps (bridge work) or create a new smile makeover. They have a longer life span when compared to other dental treatments such as Veneers & Lumineers. This makes them not only a cheap alternative but a better investment. Dental crowns can be aesthetically fabricated to reflect “light” like natural teeth, and mimic the shape, size and colour of the surrounding teeth. Your natural tooth underneath is preserved, protecting your natural tooth and gums for a longer period of time. A dental crown is a permanent fixture in your mouth and many of our patients have had the same dental crown(s) for 10-15 years.
