What are Dental Crowns?

Dental crowns, also known as caps, are prosthetic devices designed to cover and encase a damaged or weakened tooth. Crafted from materials like porcelain, metal, or a combination, crowns restore the tooth’s strength, functionality, and appearance. Custom-made to match the natural colour, size, and shape of existing teeth, dental crowns are used to address various issues, including decay, fractures, large fillings, and cosmetic concerns. They play a crucial role in preserving and protecting compromised teeth, supporting dental bridges, and enhancing overall dental aesthetics. The placement of dental crowns is a common dental procedure aimed at restoring both the form and function of damaged or compromised teeth.

The advantages of Dental Crowns

Dental crowns offer a range of benefits, making them a versatile and effective solution for various dental issues

Restoration of Function

Crowns restore the functionality of damaged or weakened teeth, allowing normal chewing and biting.

Protection and Support

They provide a protective barrier, preventing further damage to teeth with extensive decay, fractures, or large fillings.

Cosmetic Enhancement

Crowns enhance the appearance of teeth by covering discolouration, misalignment, or irregularities, contributing to a more aesthetically pleasing smile.

Preservation of Tooth Structure

Crowns preserve the remaining tooth structure by encapsulating and reinforcing it, reducing the risk of further deterioration.


Constructed from durable materials such as porcelain, metal, or a combination, crowns offer long-lasting solutions for damaged or compromised teeth.

Support for Dental Bridges

Crowns serve as abutments for dental bridges, helping replace missing teeth and maintain proper dental alignment.

Protection after Root Canal Treatment

Crowns are commonly used to protect and strengthen teeth that have undergone root canal treatment.

Improved Tooth Alignment

Crowns can be used to correct minor alignment issues, providing a more harmonious and balanced smile.


Crowns are customized to match the natural colour, shape, and size of existing teeth, ensuring a seamless integration into the overall dental structure.


Whether addressing functional concerns or enhancing aesthetics, dental crowns offer a versatile solution for various dental challenges.
