Crowns are an ideal restoration for teeth that have been chipped, broken, or have been weakened by decay or a large filling. A crown is fitted on top of the damaged tooth to protect the remaining tooth structure and create a barrier from bacteria and food particles that can cause further infection or decay.
A crown can be used to hide discoloured fillings or to help hold a bridge or denture firmly in place. If you have had root canal treatment a crown is placed over the top of the treated tooth to seal the tooth and restore natural look and function.
At Lodwig Villa we offer porcelain crowns that are custom-made to exactly fit the damaged tooth and colour-matched to blend in with your surrounding teeth. Once in place you care for your crown exactly as you do your existing teeth, and cared for properly will last for many years.
