Dental Crowns

Tauranga

We provide crowns in all available materials to suit the type of crown you would prefer. These include highly aesthetic Emax, very hard wearing Zirconia, traditional gold and bonded crowns.

A crown can be used to improve the appearance, shape or alignment of a tooth. It can also be placed on top of an implant to provide a tooth-like shape and structure for function.

Porcelain or ceramic crowns can be matched to the colour of your teeth. Other materials include gold and metal alloys, acrylic, and ceramic.

Your dentist may recommend a crown to:

  • Replace a large filling when there isn’t enough tooth remaining.
  • Protect a weak tooth from fracturing.
  • Restore a fractured tooth.
  • Attach a bridge.
  • Cover a dental implant.
  • Cover a discoloured or poorly shaped tooth.
  • Cover a tooth that has had root canal treatment.
