Dental Crowns

If your teeth have been broken, in decay or weak a new dental crown could be for you.

What Are Dental Crowns?

A crown (or a cap) is a type of dental restoration used to fix teeth that have been broken, weakened by decay or have a very large filling. The crown fits over the remaining part of a prepared tooth, making it strong and giving it the shape of a natural tooth. It will also be tooth coloured, giving the restoration a more natural appearance so it fits in with the rest of your teeth.

A crown could be a good solution for you if you have some discoloured fillings and would like to improve their appearance. Crowns can be used to replace these to give you a more aesthetic smile. Also, if you have had root canal treatment you will need a crown to protect or cap the restored tooth, allowing you to eat and bite down on it as if it was a real tooth. Crowns are also used to anchor a bridge or denture firmly in place in the mouth.

How Are Dental Crowns Made?

When you come to us for a dental crown, we will start by preparing the effected tooth, which will ensure that your crown fits snuggly and stays in place. We will then be able to take an impression of your teeth, allowing us to create a perfectly bespoke covering for the damaged tooth or teeth.

We can then create your crown, using the highest quality materials for an end result that lasts you for years to come. The four main types of dental crown include:

  • Ceramic
  • Porcelain-fused to metal
  • Gold alloy
  • Base metal alloy

The end result will be a smile that feels comfortable and natural, and looks and performs fantastically.
