A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that is placed over a weak tooth- to cover the tooth to restore its shape and size, strength and improve appearance of the tooth. When the prospect of a filling achieving these aims is poor, we suggest to take crown therapy.

A crown could hold cracked teeth together to seal the cracks so that the damage will not get worse. Crowns are also used to support and remain a heavily-damaged tooth structure (often after root canal therapy and the tooth has a high risk of fracturing away).

With modern dental technology, AVA Dental Centre could offer you choices from a wide range of materials for crowns made by advanced skilled dental technicians in the dental laboratory.

  • Gold alloy (approximately 60% gold) crowns and palladium crowns are exceptionally well suit for the grind teeth.

  • Porcelain fused to metal alloy crowns (the metal core of the crown covered by porcelain) are the most common crowns used for front teeth and even for back teeth for some aesthetic reasons.
  • Porcelain crowns and glass crowns are getting popular since the new ceramic materials are very strong and natural-looking.
  • Plastic (composite resin) crowns with carbon fiber reinforcement are the latest products which look more naturally.
