A dental cap or crown is the artificial restoration that is fitted on the remaining part of a tooth that has been specially prepared.
The crown essentially makes the tooth stronger and retains the initial colour and shape of the natural tooth.
A crown is normally fitted to:
Improve the appearance of crooked or discoloured teeth
Prolong the life and increase strength of the tooth
Help in holding the bridge that replaces missing teeth in place
This is a thin layer of porcelain that is made to fit on the front surface of the tooth.
They can improve the shape, colour, and the position of teeth in your mouth. There is a wide selection of colours to choose from, so they can whiten dark teeth as well.
Veneers are often used to make chipped teeth look naturally intact again. They can also be used to close teeth gaps by bringing a tooth that is slightly out of position back into line with the others.
Although veneers are very thin, they are held in place by a specially strong bond. Therefore, they require very little tooth removal to be fitted.
