A cap or crown is a cover that fits over a tooth that has been broken, misshaped, badly stained or damaged by decay. It usually requires more than one visit to complete. A crown can be made of Zirconia, metal, porcelain, or porcelain bonded to metal. We take an impression of the teeth and gums and make a temporary cap over the tooth until the permanent crown is ready. On your next visit, the temporary cap is removed and the permanent crown is cemented onto the tooth. The crown will closely match the colour and shape of your natural teeth.
