A crown is a tooth-shaped cap that is placed over your existing natural tooth.
Crowns are often recommended to strengthen damaged, weakened or heavily restored teeth.
Once fixed in place, crowns look, feel and function just like a natural teeth.
Crowns are often made from either a tooth coloured ceramic or metal but at New Park House Dental Centre we almost always use ceramic crowns. Advances in materials mean that ceramic crowns are incredibly strong and, aesthetically, almost indistinguishable from your own teeth.
Most crowns involve 2 appointments,. The first for the preparation and impressions (or a 3D scan) and the second for the fitting.
