A crown is a cap that a dentist fits over a damaged tooth. Once fitted, it feels completely natural and functions like a normal tooth. Since dental crowns cover the surface of the tooth, they also help to protect your tooth structure from further damage.
A crown fitting takes place over multiple appointments. To start with, your dentist will take an impression or digital scan of your mouth and send it off to a registered dental laboratory, where a qualified dental technician will manufacture your bespoke dental crowns.
At your follow-up appointment, your dentist will fit your dental crown and fix it in place with a special adhesive.
