Full covering, cuspal coverage restorations

Crowns are restorations which fully cover your natural teeth that can be used for a variety of reasons:

  • Cover the whole biting surface of the tooth to protect from fracture
  • Restore heavily broken-down teeth
  • Build up tight contact points between teeth to stop food trapping
  • Change the shape and size of teeth
  • Change the colour of teeth
  • Aesthetic reasons

Here at Brookside dental we strive to continue to invest in our knowledge and equipment to stay at the forefront of the industry and use the best materials we can.
