Crowns are mostly used to treat teeth that are badly broken down or have cracked. Crowns can provide excellent aesthetic restoration and functional protection for a tooth.
Crowns are often recommended to restore teeth that have already had root canal treatment and might be more brittle and likely to fracture. Crowns are also used to repair teeth affected by excessive grinding, an unbalanced bite, large fillings or inadequate oral hygiene.
At smile2o we create crowns from aesthetically designed materials made of precious metal covered with porcelain, zirconia (strengthened ceramic or porcelain alone). We will recommend a crown type based on our assessment of each individual case and will work closely with our dental ceramists and laboratory to produce a tooth that optimally blends with your other teeth. Crowns are a very successful way of restoring damaged or broken teeth
