A crown is a ‘cap’ or ‘helmet’ for a tooth. A dental crown is usually placed on a brittle or mechanically weak tooth to reinforce and strengthen it. A dental crown can also dramatically improve the aesthetic of a discolored or misshapen tooth.

A crown can be made from several materials with the most effective being Zirconium.

Zirconium dental crowns usually require two visits to complete.

Symptoms that may necessitate a dental crown:

  • Large fractures of the tooth
  • Deep hairline cracks of the tooth
  • Root canal treatment on a tooth
  • Heavily discoloured or misshaped tooth
  • Large fillings causing tooth to be brittle.
