A natural-looking way to repair teeth that are badly damaged by chips, cracks, decay, or other factors. Unlike veneers, which only cover the front of a tooth, crowns are fitted over the entire tooth. Porcelain crowns are the strongest, most durable dental crowns available today. In addition to improving the functionality of damaged teeth, porcelain crowns also provide natural looking restorations. The porcelain crowns used at Old Bawn Smile Dentist Clinic Tallaght are custom-crafted to closely match our patients’ teeth in colour, texture, and lustre, so their restored smiles will look flawless and beautiful.
Crowns are needed when a tooth has a significant amount of structural damage and a normal filling would not be adequate.
- Heavily filled teeth that have broken or that are likely to break in the near future.
- Teeth with old amalgam fillings often crack around the filling causing pain when chewing.
