Find out all about dental crowns in this short video from one of our Falkirk dentists.

You can think of dental crowns as protective cosmetic caps that go over your teeth. We use often use them  for missing teeth or to cover a broken tooth.

However there are several different kinds of dental crowns as you will find out here.

When would you consider a dental crown?

Dental crowns are used for cosmetic dentistry situations - when you mainly want a better smile - as well as restorative dentistry. For example a dental crown might be used to:

  • Save a broken tooth
  • Protect a tooth after root canal treatment
  • Attach to a dental implant
  • Protect a weakening tooth at risk of breaking
  • Hide a dark tooth
  • Replace a large filling when there isn't enough tooth around it
