A crown is a type of artificial cap that is placed over the natural tooth to restore it back to its original functional purpose. Crowns are normally used to repair cracked or broken teeth, so that you don’t suffer from sensitivity, or left untreated a more serious dental problem. In addition crowns can also be used to improve the look of your tooth or teeth, if you have crooked or chipped teeth.
There are many different types of crowns available on the market at the moment, and new ones are constantly being made. Here are a few that we offer at Tamworth dental & implant clinic:
Porcelain Crowns – Most people choose porcelain crowns for cosmetic reasons as they look very natural and are normally placed over the front teeth.
All-ceramic crowns – These crowns are just as strong as bonded crowns and are metal free. They also look just as natural as the porcelain crowns, which is why people tend to choose these crowns for their whole mouth.
Glass crowns – These crowns are very natural looking as just like the All-ceramic crowns can also be used anywhere in the mouth.
