What is a Dental Crown?

Also known as a tooth cap, a dental crown is essentially a dental filling that is used to stabilise your existing teeth. Dental crowns fit over the top of your existing teeth, to restore the structure and function of damaged, decayed or chipped teeth. Our dentists will often suggest a tooth cap when the tooth itself has become weak or is in danger of being lost. As removing teeth is always our last priority and last resort, a dental crown can be a great alternative that is both cost-effective and reliable.


The Benefits of a Getting a Dental Crown

There are lots of great reasons why dental crowns are a popular method of restorative dentistry, not only in Queensland but across Australia. The benefits and the uses of dental crowns include:

  • Strengthening the damaged tooth and the surrounding teeth
  • Restoring teeth to their natural size and shape
  • Covering and protecting a dental implant
  • Protecting a week tooth from breaking
  • Restoring a broken tooth to its previous strength
  • Improving the colour of teeth
  • Holding a filling in place
  • Enhancing the overall appearance of your smile
