Teeth that are already severely damaged or heavily filled sometimes have to be covered by crowns to keep them stable and prevent cracking. A crown should fit perfectly and blend in aesthetically to the rest of your teeth. This will be discussed at length — we will never place a crown you are not happy with.
A crown completely covers the visible part of the tooth and reinforces the remaining healthy hard tooth substance. Crowns can also be used to improve the appearance of a tooth or to give it a specific shape or form. They can be placed on implants to replace a missing tooth, closing the gap perfectly. Ceramic crowns are best for a natural look and offer excellent aesthetic results.
Advantages of a full ceramic crown:
• Excellent aesthetics
• High durability and stability
• High accuracy
• Very good biocompatibility
• X-ray penetrable
