Crowns are full coverage restorations. They are usually made of porcelain and cover your whole tooth. If you don’t have much natural tooth remaining due to decay or having had many fillings already, a crown may be a great option. Our dentists may also recommend a crown after root canal therapy. This is to strengthen your tooth and minimise fracture risk.
At Beaches Dental Mona Vale, your crown is made to suit your mouth in both colour and shape. The process of getting a crown is usually carried out over two appointments.
First, your tooth is prepared and temporised with a temporary crown to allow for it to function between visits. The second part of the process consists of having your permanent porcelain crown cemented on. We then ensure your bite is perfect, and you and your new crown are ready to go!
