Dental Crowns

What is a Dental Crown?

Crowns are caps made to fit over an existing tooth. Usually they are put in place to protect weak fillings or cover up broken or discoloured teeth. They are also recommended following a Root Canal Filling to protect the remaining tooth whose strength is often compromised by the extensive decay and infection that may have been present.

Crowns are tailored specifically to each patient and there are several types of crowns that can be used. Your dentist will choose the best option to ensure an aesthetic and long-lasting crown.

Porcelain Dental Crown

As part of our commitment to amalgam-free dentistry, JME Dental provides high quality porcelain crowns for our patients with severely damaged teeth. A crown is a restorative measure utilised when an insufficient amount of tooth remains to hold a filling.

Prior to the placement of a porcelain crown, we will remove the damaged portion of your tooth and reshape the remaining area to properly receive your new crown. An adhesive is then used to securely fit your crown to your tooth.

The ceramic used for your crown can be matched to your natural tooth color. When the procedure is complete, your new porcelain crown will look and feel like a natural fixture of your teeth.
