A crown is a custom-made replacement for the top part of a tooth that has been damaged by decay or breakage. The new crown recreates the same form and function as the original tooth making eating more comfortable, improving oral health and giving you a healthy smile.
Dental crowns are fabricated from ceramic, gold or non-precious metal alloys as well as natural-colour material such as porcelain or resin. Resin or porcelain can make a crown virtually invisible for a self-confident smile.
The treatment for a crown generally takes two appointments to complete.
To minimise discomfort, your dentist will start by numbing the area around the tooth to be treated. Decayed or damaged sections of the tooth are then removed. The remaining healthy part of the tooth is reshaped in preparation to receive the new crown.
Your dentist will then take impressions of your teeth to ensure the precise fit and natural shape of the new crown. Our specialist dental lab will make your new bespoke crown in a few days. While the permanent crown is being made, a temporary crown may be fitted.
On your return visit, your dentist will make sure the new crown fits correctly on your tooth. Once the shape and appearance have been optimised, the new crown is permanently bonded onto the tooth.
Dental crown restorations are durable treatments to repair damaged teeth, potentially lasting up to 15 years or more.
Dental technology and techniques are advancing all the time. If you have an existing crown that has come loose, or that you are unhappy with for oral health, functional or aesthetic reasons, we can help.
By replacing a loose, damaged or unsightly crown, eating comfort, oral health and the natural look of your teeth can be improved.
