A crown is a type of dental restoration used to fix teeth that have been broken, weakened by decay or contain a very large filling. Crowns can be made of different materials, such as all ceramic crowns, full gold crowns and porcelain bonded dental-crowns-southfields.
A crown could be a good solution for you if you have some discoloured fillings and would like to improve their appearance. Crowns can be used to replace these to give you a more appealing smile. Additionally, if you have had root canal treatment you will need a crown to protect or cap the restored tooth, allowing you to eat and bite down on it as if it was a real tooth. Crowns are also used to anchor a bridge or denture firmly in place in the mouth.
Metal free crowns are a breakthrough in restorative and cosmetic dentistry. One reason behind this is a combination of its high esthetics and superior strength. The all-ceramic dental crowns and restorations are natural-looking and contain no metal. Depending on the correction you want to make, we will work with you to select the best option whether it be crowns, veneers, a bridge or implants.
