They are attached either to your original tooth, or to a dental implant which is inserted into the jaw, and are made from metal, porcelain or ceramic.
By taking an impression of your remaining teeth and creating a mould, your new Crowns can be matched to their shape and contours, so they fit your dentition. This means that when your Crown is fitted, it will look as natural as possible and maintain your overall dental structure.
By replacing a damaged or weak tooth with a Crown, the structure of the tooth can be preserved. Depending on the severity of the damage to your tooth, a Crown may be recommended if other alternatives, such as fillings, are not ideal.
