Crowns are also known as caps and they are typically made of metal and porcelain and encase the entire tooth to provide protection and strength. Crowns are very aesthetic as we customize the shape, size and colour to give a beautiful natural appearance. There are many reasons for getting a crown including repairing fractured and decayed teeth, fixing broken fillings, enhancing aesthetics, and protecting a tooth that has a large filling or root canal therapy.
Root Canal Therapy
Root canal therapy is performed when the living tissue inside a tooth has become infected with bacteria. It involves accessing and cleaning the infected canals and filling them with a specialized filling. Signs that a tooth may require root canal therapy include but are not limited to, extreme sensitivity to hot and cold with lingering pain, pressure sensitivity, abscess or gum boil adjacent to the tooth, swelling, and occasionally the infection may be asymptomatic.
