A crown, or a cap as they are sometimes called, is an artificial restoration that fits over the remaining part of a prepared tooth. This makes it strong and gives it the shape of a natural tooth.

Crowns - Restoring your teeth

Why would I need a crown?

Crowns are an ideal way to repair teeth that have been broken, or have been weakened by decay or a very large filling. A crown could be used for a number of other reasons, for example:

  • You may have a discoloured filling and would like to improve the appearance of the tooth
  • You may have had a root filling and need a crown to protect what is left of the tooth
  • It may help to hold a bridge or denture firmly in place.

Patient feedback

The teeth in my lower jaw were crowned in 2003. It took a day in the surgery, no pain, and it was affordable!

Three years on, and I’m delighted with the work. Thank you Rob for giving me back my smile.
