The same can be said of crowns or caps. When a tooth is badly damaged or broken down it may not be appropriate to restore with a simple filling. A crown may be a better solution. We prepare your tooth and take impressions or moulds of your teeth that are then used by our dental technicians. The technician will construct the crown in the dental laboratory and we then cement it in place 1 -2 weeks later.
There are lots of types of crowns from gold to porcelain bonded to gold, to complete porcelain. Some are available as NHS treatments and some privately.
We will always offer you choices and help give you all the information regarding the different types of crowns that are suitable for you.
