A beautiful solution to functional, structural and aesthetic challenges with teeth.
Crowns are just one effective solution for teeth with significant decay, broken teeth or teeth with large fillings which compromise their integrity.
Taking timely action by defining your needs and treatment, crowns can improve function, the way teeth look and reduce the advancement of other issues such as fractures or cracks in teeth.

Crowns: what are they?
A dental crown is sometimes referred to as a tooth crown or cap. Working like a helmet that fits snugly over and around a person’s natural tooth, the crown protects and reinforces a tooth’s structure.
Crowns can also help prevent a tooth from breaking or fracturing, particularly in teeth that have multiple fillings and cracks, or have undergone root canal therapy. In the case of root canal therapy, crowns also help seal the tooth, preventing bacteria from causing reinfection.
With precision and science pivotal in the design and construction of crowns, we place importance on the materials selected for this treatment. We encourage people who see us for crowns to understand the benefits and differences between porcelain, zirconia, ceramic and gold crowns.
