Dental Crowns

What do you mean by dental crowns?

A crown is used to entirely cover or "cap" a damaged tooth. Besides strengthening a damaged tooth, a crown can be used to improve tooth appearance, shape or alignment. A crown can also be placed on top of an implant to provide a tooth-like shape and structure. Crown is cemented over the gum line and it covers the whole teeth making it completely invisible.

How long does a crown last?

What problems can one face with crowns?

  • Teeth may be sensitive to hot/cold after the effect of anaesthesia is over.
