Dental Porcelain Crowns in Manchester
If you have quite severe decay or damage to your teeth this can be corrected by using dental crowns, also known as a ‘cap’.
Crowns are suitable to repair teeth which have broken or have chipped significantly. We artificially restore the broken or damaged tooth using materials that match the colour and shape of the other teeth.
This makes the tooth stronger and restores your smile.
What are dental crowns?
Crowns are artificial restorations of teeth that serve to replace teeth that have been broken or have decayed. They are usually made of porcelain that has been bonded to a precious metal. These look very natural and can help restore your confidence in your smile. There is no need to continue to be embarrassed of your broken or decayed teeth and hide them when you smile.
When would crowns be appropriate?
A dental crown can be used to treat a tooth that would otherwise need to be removed. If you have a tooth or multiple teeth that are causing you pain or discomfort, or alternatively if you have visible decay or broken teeth, we can help.
Crowns can also be used if you would like to improve the appearance of a tooth which has a discoloured filling, or to protect a root filling. You can also use crowns to hold a dental bridge or a denture in place.
