A crown is an artificial restoration that fits over the remaining part of a prepared tooth, making it strong and giving it the shape of a natural tooth.
A crown is sometimes known as a ‘cap’. Crowns are an ideal restoration for teeth that have been broken, or have been weakened by decay or a very large filling. They can be made of porcelain or gold or a combination of these materials.
Just a note to let you know how pleased I was with the work you did on my teeth and how thankful I am that you suggested getting the four teeth done at the same time.
What was worrying me the most was how you were actually going to get the veneers off and the cost. I stayed away for almost a year before I plucked up the courage to ask how you were actually going to get the veneers off my teeth. You explained how it was going to be done and I felt I could go ahead with the treatment. I made the appointment and was still a little apprehensive about the length of time you would be working on my teeth and if it was going to be painful.
The preparatory work and the removing of the veneers faded into oblivion when you finished putting the crowns on and I Iooked in the mirror to see what the end result was and how well matched to the colour of my own teeth!!! Worth every penny.
You are an artist we well as a great dentist - you know how to treat people's fears and apprehensions and make them feel at ease. I would never again hesitate with regard to my dental treatment - I have utter confidence in you and your work.- Miriam Ni-Udaigh. London « Back to Services
