A very heavily filled or compromised tooth may need a crown to restore its strength or to improve its appearance. High strength materials such as ceramic or gold are fabricated outside the mouth and are then bonded into place.
Using modern computer aided design and machining we can now make and fit a high strength beautiful ceramic crown in a single visit. We also work with one of New Zealand’s top ceramists who is able to craft ceramic crowns which are indistinguishable from the surrounding teeth.
Prevention Is Best
Even with excellent home oral hygiene, you can’t clean your teeth as well as a professional hygienist. By seeing a hygienist regularly, you’ll keep your teeth and gums healthy and help prevent tooth decay.
Love Your Smile
If your teeth are a little worse for wear – broken or weak from acid, too many fillings, or from grinding – it can impact your smile, the way you talk or eat and certainly your confidence.
You only have one set of teeth – keeping them working well and looking good takes careful, ongoing work. Of course, the best cure is prevention.
