Crowns are sometimes referred to as “caps”. They are custom made to fit your whole tooth, giving it a new surface. They are made to withstand the pressure of your bite, so you have full use of your teeth after they are capped. Crowns are meant to cover poorly shaped, broken, chipped or teeth that have suffered decay. Crowns are another wonderful way to achieve the smile that makes you and everyone around you, happy.
Other methods of achieving the perfect smile in teeth that are compromised by chips, cracks and discolouration are caps which are applied to the outside of the repaired tooth to present an evenly coloured, evenly spaced, fresh smile. Ask us about these options.
