If you have a tooth that is severely damaged by tooth decay or trauma you may need a crown. A crown is a strong, durable cap that sits over the top of your tooth and it provides an all-round protection over compromised tooth structures.
Traditionally, crowns are made in a dental laboratory over 2 – 3 weeks, however with the advancements in technology crowns may now be created on-site at Red Hill Dental.
