The treatment options available when choosing to replace missing teeth will be based on how many teeth are missing and the state of your other teeth.
Modern materials and techniques mean that crowns have a far more realistic appearance and feel than they used to with no black line at the gum line and none of the bulky feel that is often associated with older crowns.
Crowns are usually used to restore teeth when the top, visible part of the tooth has been broken or damaged or is no longer strong enough for fillings. Sometimes they are necessary if we provide bridgework because we need to fit them to the neighbouring teeth to make them strong enough to support the bridge.
Today we use new methods and fabricate crowns out of porcelain or ceramic. These are free of metal but extremely strong and offer a more natural cosmetic look.
When treatment is complete the new crown may feel somewhat alien in your mouth, but this should last no longer than a couple of days. Your crown should last for a number of years, but only if you continue to maintain a good level of oral hygiene.
