Maximum choice for the happiest outcome.
When a tooth is badly broken or heavily filled, the dentist may need to crown or ‘cap’ it to restore its appearance and strength.
Crowns can be made of a variety of different materials, such as porcelain or porcelain bonded to gold. New materials are continually being introduced. It is a good idea to talk to your dentist about which crown would be best for you.
The traditional method for fitting a crown involves shaping the tooth under local anaesthetic and then taking an impression using a rubber-like material. The impression is then sent to the laboratory and the technician makes the crown.
However, at Norfolk House, using advanced digital technology we are able to shape your tooth, scan it, mill the crown from a block of porcelain before fitting it, all in the same visit.
