Although teeth are extremely hard and difficult to break, trauma, decay, root canal treatment and some older fillings can weaken the tooth and cause fractures. In these cases, a crown is often the best way to save a tooth and strengthen it.
Crowns are usually made of porcelain but may also be made of gold and other metals.
Crowns provide a long lasting, strong, aesthetic and permanent solution to restore and save your weakened tooth.
Any teeth with large fillings, especially the old metal amalgam fillings, are at high risk of fracturing and possibly requiring extraction.
Crowns are also used on front teeth to improve the appearance of a tooth or teeth. Some teeth are badly broken down, are heavily filled or stained, or are rotated and have gaps. Using crowns our dentists can provide a beautiful result and provide the smile you have always dreamed of.
At St Agnes Dental we use the latest advanced technology. Our dentists are highly skilled and extremely experienced in providing the best possible crowns for your teeth. All of our laboratory work is sourced entirely from Australia and no inferior overseas materials are ever used.
