Hilton Dental Clinic

1 Hilton Crescent, West Bridgford, Nottingham, NG2 6HT

A crown is an artificial restoration that fits over the remaining part of a prepared tooth, making it strong and giving it the shape of a natural tooth.

A crown is sometimes known as a ‘cap’. Crowns are an ideal restoration for teeth that have been broken, or have been weakened by decay or a very large filling. They can be made of porcelain or gold or a combination of these materials.

A dental crown could be used for a number of other reasons, for instance:

 

  • you may have discoloured fillings and would like to improve the appearance of the tooth

  • you may have had a root filling which will need a crown to protect it

  • it may help hold a bridge or denture firmly in place.

Here is how it works:

  1. An impression is taken of the tooth that needs restoring.

  2. A crown is made in the dental laboratory to fit the tooth precisely and match the neighbouring teeth.

  3. The tooth is then prepared and the crown fitted securely on top.
