A crown (or cap) is an artificial restoration that fits over the remaining part of a prepared tooth, making it strong and giving it the shape of a natural tooth.

Crowns are an ideal restoration for a tooth that has been broken or weakened by decay or a very large filling. Crowns may also be used for a number of other reasons, such as:

  • To improve the appearance of teeth when a patient has many discoloured fillings
  • To cover a tooth which has undergone a root filling which needs a crown to protect it
  • To help hold a bridge or denture in position.

What is a crown made of?

Crowns can be made of a variety of different materials and new materials are continually being introduced. Some of the most popular options are listed below.

Porcelain bonded to precious metal: This is what most crowns are made from. A precious metal base is made and then porcelain is applied in layers over it.

Porcelain crowns: These crowns are made entirely out of porcelain and can look very natural and are most often used for front teeth, where aesthetics is a prime concern.

Gold crowns: Gold is one of the oldest filling materials, and is used in conjucntion with other metal alloys to increase its strength, making it a very hardwearing crown.
