Dental crowns can be made from zirconia, porcelain, ceramic, metal and gold and are used for prosthetic reconstructions anywhere in the mouth. They are tooth-shaped coverings which are placed over an existing tooth to disguise ugly teeth or to strengthen weak teeth.
They are used in cosmetic dentistry to improve the appearance of a tooth and to disguise discoloration and irregularities.
They can be used to restore the function of a tooth or to replace a missing tooth with a bridge, or dental implant.
Weak teeth damaged by decay, root canal treatment or fracture will benefit from the extra protection of a crown.
