Dr Stephen Hennessy and Dr lan Walsh are fully qualified cosmetic Dental Surgeons having over twenty five years of combined experience.
A crown is an artificial restoration that fits over the remaining part of a prepared tooth, making it strong and giving it the shape of a natural tooth.
A crown is sometimes known as a ‘cap’. Crowns are an ideal restoration for teeth that have been broken, or have been weakened by decay or a very large filling.
A dental crown could be used for a number of other reasons, for instance:
- you may have discoloured fillings and would like to improve the appearance of the tooth
- you may have had a root filling which will need a crown to protect it
- it may help hold a bridge or denture firmly in place.
Just wanted to say a big thank you to all the staff. We are new to your practice and our son Jake had two teeth extracted on Tuesday. Jake was very nervous. He really struggles with “needles” and was worried about the whole procedure. Everyone went out of their way to put Jake at ease from the welcoming receptionists, dental nurses and of course the dental surgeon. With your support, he managed to have the two 1st teeth removed and although I know he wants to avoid similar experiences, the experience was much better than he expected.
Thank you for going the extra mile for Jake. Jake really appreciated it and so did we.
Ian, Anne & Jake
