Crowns

Crowns are usually provided by your dentist.

Metal Crown

A metal crown, covered in porcelain, provides a basic solution. However, in certain light, this can make the tooth look dull and lifeless.

Lava or Procera Crown

An alternative is for the crown to be made entirely of ceramics (eg Lava or Procera crown). This will give a more natural look to the tooth.

Crown Margin

Over time the gum can recede away from the crown, this exposes the crown margin. The old crown can be removed and a new, deeper crown fitted to cover this area.

Implant Crown Options

Once an implant has been placed an abutment is fitted to hold the crown. The abutment and the base of the crown may be metal. However,in certain light, this can make the tooth look dull. An alternative is for the abutment to be made of white material and the crown made of solid porcelain.
This will give a more natural look to the tooth.

Post Crown

This can be a solution for a badly decayed tooth. The tooth is prepared, the nerve is removed and a post is inserted onto which a crown is fitted.
