We are fortunate that modern dentistry allows us to repair discoloured or damaged teeth with all porcelain crowns. A crown or cap covers and replicates the entire tooth right down to the gum level. The dental porcelains that are available today are very strong but also highly aesthetic allowing us to make the crown appear very natural. The following example shows a tooth that had been discoloured for many years. The tooth had trauma and root canal treatment, both of which have discoloured and weakened the tooth. The all porcelain crown masks the underlying tooth colour, allowing us to recreate a better tooth form and to protect the tooth structure underneath the crown from further damage.
