Sometimes known as caps, they are carefully fitted ‘cap’ that sits over an existing tooth to protect it from further damage and to improve your overall smile.  They can hold cracked teeth together and support bridges, they are often the final step in root canal treatment. They can also cover discoloured teeth to improve the appearance of your teeth.

A crown may be needed if you have a weak or damaged tooth.  It also protects a tooth that may be worn down from further wear and tear.
