Information for Patients - Crowns

Crowns are a laboratory-constructed restoration, which covers all or part of a tooth in order to improve both appearance and function. They are used to restore decayed or damaged teeth and also to improve aesthetics. They may be made of porcelain bonded to metal or totally in porcelain. The latter sometimes can be used on front teeth so that they are virtually indistinguishable from their neighbours. A badly broken tooth may need a post fitted into the root of the tooth to give better support to the crown.

This lady was very unhappy with the worn appearance of her teeth. The most favourable option was to restore her teeth with crowns and improve the height of her lower face by increasing the height of her bite. She had all her upper teeth crowned and all her lower teeth crowned apart from her four front teeth that were restored with tooth coloured fillings. This treatment restored her teeth and her confidence:
