Crowns are an ideal way to rebuild a damaged tooth.
Crowns can also be used to reshape and help realign uneven and slightly crooked teeth and can dramatically improve the appearance of a tooth that has been badly discoloured by fillings adding to a healthy and vibrant smile.
Root Canaled Tooth + Crown – Drilling into a tooth weakens the tooth’s structural integrity. Following a root canal treatment, placement of a Crown will often be advised for strength and because Crowns are also best for sealing the root canaled tooth to protect against any further infection.
Root Canal treated teeth may also require the added support of a “post” to give strength and improve the bonding of the Crown to the root. Made of stainless steel, posts are fitted directly into the root canal and can be either pre-fabricated or custom made by our Dental Technicians to accurately fit the shape of the prepared root canal. Once the post is in place, the Crown is attached on top.
