Dental crowns are a popular form of treatment for patients with damaged, broken or worn down teeth. A crown is more commonly known as a ‘cap’ and is designed to protect the tooth from further damage.
There are a variety of reasons for having a dental crown which is discussed further in this section.
‘Why have crowns?’ ‘What are they made of?’ ‘How long does a crown last for?’ These are just a few of the many questions asked by patients about dental crowns.
What is a dental crown?
A dental crown is a replacement tooth or ‘restoration’ which is designed to repair a cracked, worn down or broken tooth. If you have a chipped tooth or a tooth that has become damaged as a result of decay then a crown can protect it from further trauma.
People often refer to a crown as a ‘cap’ because it sits over your damaged tooth in order to protect its structure.
A dental crown has the shape and color of a natural tooth and fits in well with your natural teeth.
