Since crowns cover the entire surface of a tooth, they are an excellent dental restoration method for broken or badly decayed teeth.
In some cases, your dentist may even decide to place a crown over your tooth following a root canal treatment. The dental crown’s versatility enables it to also be used as a prosthetic tooth in dental implants and dental bridges.
Many types of crowns exist from full porcelain such as Emax or zirconia crowns for strength as well as traditional metal-ceramic and gold crowns. Onlays and Inlays are other terms for partial laboratory-made restorations and they can also be fully ceramic or gold-based.
For front teeth that are worn or broken, porcelain veneers may be used for improving their appearance and function or part of a smile makeover. If your veneer has come loose, feel free to get in touch with Instant Dental and one of our Dentists can advise and treat if necessary.
