At Apollonia, our award-winning dental practice Liverpool, Dental crowns, known as caps, are used to cover and strengthen damaged or discolored teeth. Crowns protect the tooth and also restore form and function. Crowns and veneers are recommended for teeth with worn fillings, large cavities, cracks or other damage.
Dental crowns can be made of metal, porcelain, or a combination of the two; however, porcelain crowns are, by far, considered the most natural looking.
To prepare your tooth for the crown, the dentist will first remove and treat any decay or infection. He will then make an impression of your tooth. The impression is sent to specially trained technicians who will create your new crown. For porcelain dental crowns, the doctor will carefully match the color of your new crown to the color of your natural teeth. This ensures that your results will be as natural looking as possible.
