A dental crown is a porcelain, metal-fused porcelain, or full metal cap fitted on top of your natural tooth. It restores both the form and the function of your tooth, and thanks to advances in cosmetic dentistry our technicians can fabricate a replacement nearly indistinguishable from your natural teeth.
Dental crowns can have restorative or cosmetic function; they can improve the strength of a weak tooth, aid the function of a chipped or broken molar, hold together a severely damaged tooth, rebuild a tooth after a root canal treatment, or simply camouflage a misshapen or discoloured tooth. Dental crowns also anchor dental bridges, and form the tooth in a dental implant.
Relatively speaking, no. They are more expensive than a filling, but cheaper than an implant, a bridge, or dentures. For purely cosmetic treatments they are priced comparatively to veneers thus are commonly chosen only when necessary for structure.
