Why we need Crowns
Most people will experience damage to the surface (enamel) of their teeth at some point. Teeth become cracked, chipped or discoloured due to a large range of causes, from severe trauma to the natural effects of day-to-day wear.
When decay or damage to the surface of a tooth becomes significant, the tooth can be reduced and a custom-made tooth bonded or cemented to its surface. This restoration is called a “crown.” Crowns are most commonly made of porcelain or porcelain bonded to metal.
With the state-of-the-art Cerec system, in most cases, we can manufacture your crown right in our office to be placed the same day.
When damage to the tooth extends to pulp a root canal treatment will be needed
