Sometimes, teeth can be severely compromised from decay or wear and tear that produces cracks.
Such teeth are fragile and may fracture over time even with normal use. Some fractures may cause enough damage to the tooth that it needs to be removed.
To prevent this scenario, crowns may be used to improve the structural integrity of weakened teeth. A crown (sometimes called a cap) protects the tooth from further damage.
Crowns are sometimes advised when a filling is not suitable due to the weakness of remaining tooth structure.
There are numerous types of crowns available with different materials and manufacturing processes. At Iconic Dentistry, we are able to offer CAD/CAM all-ceramic crowns that are completed within a single visit. This is achieved using the Planscan® system. This is made on-site while you wait so you can be sure of absolute quality control. No lab work is ever sent to overseas or interstate laboratories at Iconic Dentistry.
