To Crown or not to Crown?
Crowns are tooth-shaped “Caps” that go over your teeth to restore their shape and size. They are usually made in a special Laboratory by a technician, and sometimes on CAD systems. Crowns are like custom jewellery, made of precious metals and ceramic, they need to fit perfectly to give strength and longevity. Crowns should restore function and esthetics, maintain the integrity of the tooth and the arch.
It is recommended to Crown your tooth if it is heavily restored or has cracks in the enamel or if the tooth is root filled. We also use Crowns to improve esthetics, improving smiles bringing back former glory of youth. Crowns are a costly item but they are definitely worth every cent.
All of our dentist’s at Palms Dental Centre have expertise in placing ceramic Crown restorations. We are very fortunate in having a close working relationship with our long-standing dental technician Julian from Esthetic Dental Ceramics who crafts beautiful Crowns.
