It is likely that half of adults over the age of 50 may need to have a crown at some point


A crown is a tooth-shaped cover or helmet that sits over your tooth right down to the gum line. It is often used after root canal treatment in situations where teeth have been heavily filled and for those that are more likely to break in the future. Additionally, they are used to act as a tooth if you have an implant fitted. Click here for more information about implants.

Crowns have both practical and cosmetic benefits. They restore the appearance of teeth that have become worn down – they look exactly like a real tooth – and enable those who need them to chew properly again.

It is estimated that a third of the Western population has at least one crown. It is likely that half of all adults over the age of 50 will need one, so it’s a good idea to find a dentist you trust to take care of your oral health
