A crown is a thin cover placed over a tooth and held in place by dental adhesive or cement to improve the appearance of unsightly teeth.
Crowns can be made from a variety of materials including plastic, ceramic or metal alloys. A combination of metal and ceramic is also available to maximise strength and simulate the appearance of natural teeth.
The latest innovation in aesthetic crown and bridge work is metal free ceramic crowns to cover natural teeth or restore dental implants and bridges. Zirconium offers a very strong substructure and cad cam technology means the porcelain that is bonded to the surface perfectly mimics your natural tooth colour.
