As the name suggests, the primary role of restorative dentistry is to “bring back” the function (biting and chewing ability) of a tooth or teeth that have been damaged due to accident or disease as well as restore the look of the smile to a pleasing balanced appearance. Restorative dentistry normally occurs through the use of dental fillings, endodontics, inlays, onlays and dental crowns.
A dental crown is a relatively simple, and therefore popular restoration, that is used whenever the damage to a tooth is more extensive. A crown completely covers the tooth like a protective “shell” and is usually made of a natural looking and durable ceramic material which very well recreates the anatomy of the tooth.
We create your crown using our digital scanner to recreate the ideal anatomy of your teeth – no goop involved! Crowns might be suitable for teeth that have fractured or for people with very strong bites or bruxism habits (grinding or clenching the teeth). They are also a great aesthetic choice for teeth that might require a change in shape or contour.
