Dental Crowns

A dental crown is a cast restoration that is made to fit over a tooth. Crowns can be made of various materials including porcelain, gold, stainless steel and other materials.

A crown may be indicated to restore the function and appearance of a tooth that has had root canal treatment, trauma, a large filling or extensive decay or fracture.

If a crown is indicated, this will be discussed with you and the most appropriate option will be selected for your individual needs.

What Our Clients Say About OB Dental?

I had a dental emergency and my own practice couldn't fit me in. Jacqueline saw me at very short notice and could not have been nicer or more pleasant to deal with. Would absolutely recommend and will be switching dentists going forward


I spotted Dr. Jacqueline O'Brien advertising on The Clare Echo, booked an appointment which I had within days and I can safely say I will be recommending Jacqueline to my own friends and family in future. She was very kind and patient throughout my appointment and made me feel extremely comfortable. A super dentist and one I'lI see using for many years to come.

Niall O'Connor
