Crowns Lichfield crowns in Staffordshire
At Spires Dental Clinic we offer a range of replacement or reinforcing tooth options, including dental crowns. Dental crowns restore the shape and strength of teeth while improving their appearance.
Crowns are incredibly versatile and can be slotted as a "cap" over an existing weak or broken tooth, support a largely filled tooth, cover discoloured or stained teeth, secure dental bridges or attach to dental implants. There are different kinds of dental crowns, such as resin, ceramic, porcelain or metal, which are chosen depending on your condition and financial situation.
Dental crowns are matched to your natural tooth shade, with ceramic and porcelain crowns achieving this natural look more so than their resin counterparts. They are also stronger than resin crowns and considered more aesthetically pleasing than metal ones. Usually temporary dental crowns are fitted, while personalised permanent dental crowns are being prepared specific to your dental contours.
Contact our friendly practice for more information about dental crowns. We can assess your condition and advise you on options available to meet your needs.
