Crowns are an ideal restoration for teeth that have been broken, worn down, heavily filled or weakened by decay.
Crowns are often referred to as ‘caps’. They cover the remaining parts of the natural tooth when a large amount of structure has been lost. As such, they provide what is known as ‘full coverage’. Crowns can be constructed from many different materials. The type of crown depends on the amount of tooth left, the tooth type and the patient preference.
Crowns can improve the strength and durability of heavily restored and broken teeth giving a more natural and confident smile in the process. Crown treatments are carried out over two visits, 3 weeks apart. At Elite, we only use the best laboratories to produce the best final result whilst always trying to provide best value for money to patients.
