A crown (also known as a cap), is a protective cover fitted over the existing structure of a broken or damaged tooth to restore function and appearance. A crown may completely or partially cover the tooth. Crowns are strong, robust and durable restorations.

Crowns are routinely used to restore a tooth which has been so badly damaged by decay or fracture that it becomes impossible to restore with ordinary filling materials.

Crowns may also be used for cosmetic purposes. They can replace large and unsightly fillings and improve the appearance of discoloured and misshapen teeth.

Crowns can be made from a variety of materials; gold, precious metal, porcelain or a combination of porcelain and metal. The dentist will advise on the best material choice.
