Crowns are used to restore extremely worn or badly damaged teeth. They are made of porcelain, with or without a metal underlay structure, and cover the whole tooth.
During the procedure, part of the tooth surface is removed allowing for a mould to be taken, from which the crown is fabricated. Provisional covers are fitted on the teeth while the fabrication is undertaken. On the second visit these covers are removed, while the customised, carefully crafted crowns are cemented in place.
