A crown is a covering that sits over the top of the tooth creating a tooth surface to protect, cover, seal and strengthen your tooth.
Situations where a crown may be the solution include;
- Larger fillings that have broken down or have formed decay around them may need a crown to save the tooth.
- A cracked tooth may need a crown to hold it together.
- Teeth that are very sensitive, either from of "wear", or from receeding gums.
- A tooth that has undergone Root Canal Therapy will need a crown to properly seal and protect the tooth.
