What is a dental crown?
A dental crown is a cap that is employed to treat highly decayed, damaged, or malformed teeth. Contact us today.
Shaped like a tooth, a dental crown is referred to as a cap, as it encapsulates the tooth being treated.
Our dentists will make sure excess or decayed portions of the affected tooth have been removed. This is to provide space for the restoration and ensure a sound underlying structure before treatment can begin.
We are one of London’s leading smile clinics. Find out about our practice.
The dental crown can then be placed over top of the tooth. The cap is then secured in place with dental cement.

Why Dental Crowns?
There are various reasons why our dentists would recommend a dental crown.
- Protecting a weak tooth from being damaged further. This also works to hold together parts of a cracked tooth.
- Crowns can also restore teeth that have been severely worn down.
- Crowns are often used to hold a dental bridge in place. Similarly, they can cover a dental implant.
- Replace a large filling when there isn’t much tooth left.
