For any damaged teeth, we can use crowns to restore their structure and appearance. Crowns are usually made from porcelain or ceramic so they look as close to the real thing as possible. The crowns work by fitting over the damaged tooth, restoring its strength and appearance. Crowns can also be used to fit on top of a dental implant to replace a missing tooth.

We offer the following types of crown:

  • Porcelain
  • Zirconia
  • Emax
  • Porcelain bonded to metal
  • Gold

What does the treatment involve?

We first start by carrying out a full assessment so we can be sure that tooth we plan to restore is healthy enough to support a crown. We may need to treat the tooth beforehand if we notice any infection.

The tooth is prepared, removing only the amount of enamel that’s necessary to accommodate the crown. We then take impressions of the treated tooth. These are used to create your custom-made crown.

We provide a temporary crown so the tooth is protected between appointments. Once your new crown is ready, we have you back in for the fitting where we check the fit and then secure it in place with dental adhesive.

Looking after your crowns

You will need to treat your crown with as much care as the rest of your teeth. While the new crown will be resistant to decay and bacteria, the natural tooth supporting it isn’t. It’s worth avoiding biting the crown on any unusually hard foods.

During your dental examinations, your dentist will check your crowns and keep an eye on them to ensure they last for as long as possible.
