Dental crowns cover or encase the tooth on which they are cemented, and they are used when rebuilding broken or decayed teeth as they strengthen teeth and improve their appearance.
Porcelain and porcelain-bonded-to-metal crowns are both available – speak to your dentist to find out what’s right for you.
Implants offer a more permanent solution for anyone who is missing one or more teeth. They can support a single tooth crown, or prostheses to replace many teeth.
As the process from assessment to surgery and then crown placement can take many months, it’s best to discuss your options and suitability with your dentist.
