Crowns

Ask Our Sydney Dentists about Dental Crowns

Dental crowns are used in restorative dentistry to cover teeth affected by damage or decay. Once a cavity has been filled, the dentist will place a crown on top of the remaining tooth structure, preventing further decay from occurring and restoring the natural shape of the tooth.

Crowns are used to amend the shape, size, and strength of teeth, and can be used for both aesthetic and functional reasons.

Crowns are also commonly used to strengthen teeth following root canal therapy, as these teeth are more brittle and likely to fracture. They may also be used to repair the following oral conditions:

  • Excessive grinding of teeth, or an improper bite
  • An irritable large filling
  • Inadequate oral hygiene
  • Ageing teeth

Types of crowns

If you need a crown fitted, there are many more options available today than merely the metal crowns of old. Now, thanks to the latest advancements in cosmetic dentistry, patients can benefit from porcelain crowns, which are made to match your existing tooth colour, texture and translucency.

As a result, you can get crowns that blend in perfectly with your own teeth. With such a natural look, no one will ever know you’ve even been to the dentist!
