Crowns are usually required when your tooth has cracked or decayed and there is not enough support left to hold a filling in place. In this case, your dentist may fit a crown over the top of the existing tooth, retaining the remains of the tooth yet at the same time providing an outer barrier against bacteria.

What is a Dental Crown?

Fitting a crown usually requires two visits. The first visit will involve your dentist taking a mould and preparation of your tooth so that the crown will fit neatly over the tooth.

On the second visit, usually within two weeks, your new crown will be ready to be fitted. Your dentist will fit the crown and then cement it into place, providing that the colour and fit match the original specification and your existing teeth.
