A crown is a type of dental restoration used to repair teeth that have been broken, weakened by decay or contain a very large filling.

Here is how it works:

  1. A local anaesthetic will be administered

  2. The tooth will be prepared with a drill.

  3. An impression or a 3D scan are taken of your teeth.

  4. A temporary restoration will be placed on the tooth to protect it.

  5. The crown will be made in the dental laboratory to fit your tooth precisely and match the neighbouring teeth.

  6. A few weeks later your crown will be fitted.
