Sometimes, when a tooth with significant decay needs to be reconstructed, a crown may be use to do the job. Crowns are usually made from porcelain or a porcelain metal combination.

Crowns have great durability and strength, providing excellent support for a broken down tooth. Grafton Dental also does implant crowns, which is a  different type of crown that is fitted on to an implant peg after this has been placed by a specialist.

Dr V will examine any areas of concerns from which we can discuss the best and most affordable treatment options with you.
