Crowns and Veneers

Repair damaged teeth without replacing them.

What are Dental Crowns?

Commonly known as a ‘cap’, a dental crown is fabricated outside of the mouth by one of our master dental technicians, and fits over the entire surface of the tooth. This acts to strengthen the tooth, especially when they have been significantly weakened following root canal treatment.

Our master technicians use super high strength tooth coloured ceramic materials that look, act and feel like natural teeth.

Benefits of Crowns and Veneers

There are lots of things to consider with your treatment. During your visit to Wellswood & Babbacombe dental, your dentist will explain the benefits of all treatment options available to you as well as any aftercare needed, such as routine hygine visits.
A dental crown can protect a damaged or weak tooth from further decay or breakage.
Crowns can restore a broken or severely worn down tooth to its normal shape and function.
Improve the appearance of a discolored or misshapen tooth.
A dental crown can provide support for a tooth with a large filling or a dental bridge.
Dental crowns can last for many years with proper care and maintenance.

Dental Veneers

Veneers are similar to crowns, however they are generally used only on front teeth. Made of the same high strength ceramic material also hand crafted by our master technicians, veneers are usually used to modify the shape and colour of damaged, worn or fractured front teeth.
