The visible part of a tooth is called the crown. If it is broken, weakened or heavily filed an artificial crown is fitted to protect and resolve the original, and improve appearance.

Crowns are made from different materials, including metals and ceramics. They are durable and look and feel like your natural teeth, as the colour and shape can be matched to yours. The strength of the tooth underneath plays a role in how long your crown lasts, but with proper care, this can be a long time.


We are patients; the whole family are, some are with Mr Opperman others are with Mr Oelofse. They are excellent dentists, and we are happy, as we donʼt fear coming. The treatments and the service is extremely good. The best thing about this practice is that it is located right near our home in Hertfordshire.
