Dental Crowns

A dental crown is one of the options available to repair heavily damaged teeth, whilst preserving as much of the natural tooth structure as possible. We have various types of crown to restore a tooth to its original appearance and level of function.

You may need a dental crown for several reasons, including:

– Protecting a weak tooth (possibly from decay) from breaking or to keep the weak tooth together if parts of it are cracked.
– Restoring a broken or a severely worn down tooth.
– Covering and supporting a tooth with a large filling and not much tooth remaining.
– Covering misshapen or severely discoloured teeth.
– Covering a tooth that has had root canal treatment.

There are three materials or combinations that dental crowns can be made from. These are gold, porcelain fused to metal and all-ceramic. Once cemented into place, the crown fully encases the entire visible portion of a tooth that lies at and above the gum line.

Dental Crowns All Ceramic
Dental Crowns Full Gold
Dental Crowns Porcelain fused to metal

It usually takes a minimum of two appointments for a single crown. Whilst the time when the crown is being made, up to the fitting stage, you will be provided with a temporary crown, made in surgery on the day of your first appointment.
