A dental crown may be recommended if a tooth is very decayed and not strong enough to be filled or if the top of the tooth has been accidently damaged.
You may need a crown following root canal treatment and crowns are also sometimes used to support a dental bridge.
We take a digital scan of the area using the latest iTero scanner, and send it to a dental laboratory, where a new crown is carefully crafted to provide a perfect fit and colour match. The crown is then fitted over the remaining part of a tooth, to strengthen it and make it look like a whole, natural tooth once more.
Modern crowns are not as bulky as older ones, making them feel more natural, and they also do not have the old-fashioned metal edge at the gumline. The result is a strong and realistic restoration that should last for years to come.
At our clinic we use iTero digital dentistry to ensure that our restorations are made with the highest degree of accuracy for the best fit and giving the patient maximum comfort.
