These caps serve two purposes — to restore the look and function of your tooth and protect it from further damage. A crown is often the final step in a root canal treatment, restoring what is likely a heavily compromised tooth to its full strength and functionality.
Your dentist will begin by filing down and reshaping your natural tooth under a local anaesthetic. They will then take an accurate impression of your prepared tooth and send it off to a specialist dental laboratory to have your crown produced.
Once it is ready, your dentist will fit your new crown over the prepared tooth and check it for a good fit before cementing it in place with a dental adhesive. To determine the material for your crown your dentist will consider the tooth location, the amount of tooth that shows when you smile, the shade of the tooth, the position of the gum tissue, the function of the tooth and your preference.< Back to Treatments
