Dental Crowns

Dental crown: is a tooth shaped  sleeve  made of  porcelain or metal or combination of both that is placed  over the natural tooth.

Crowns may be recommended to restore tooth’s  shape, size and strength. Once placed, the crown fully covers the visible  portion of a tooth.

Why is the dental crown needed?

  • To protect  a weak tooth from breaking;
  • To restore an already broken tooth or tooth that  has been severely  worn down;
  • To cover and support  tooth with a large  filling;
  • To hold dental bridge in place;
  • To cover misshaped and  discoloured  tooth ( e.g. after  root  canal  treatment)
  • To cover a dental implant.


*The treatment takes about 2 weeks.
