A crown is a restoration that covers and fits around the whole tooth to strengthen it after it became weak due to decay, cracks, large filling or root canal treatment.

Some teeth get crowns because they may be darker in colour or because the tooth is misshapen.

It usually takes 2 visits to finish the crown fitting on your tooth.

Crowns often can replicate the natural colour of your teeth, even you may struggle to identify the difference between your crown and natural tooth it in your mouth. In some cases, your dentist may recommend a gold or metal crown for the back teeth.

Ask your dentist about the benefits of having metal crowns –if you were indicated one.
