Crowns

Crowns fit neatly over unsightly or broken teeth, providing complete coverage and restoring strength, shape and appearance. They offer an aesthetic restoration for broken, decayed or discoloured teeth, or those with large fillings.

Made from porcelain, ceramic or metal alloys, crowns can also be used on teeth that have had root canal treatment or secured to dental implants to replace missing teeth. They are matched in size, shape and colour to sit comfortably alongside existing teeth.

Treatment steps

  • A layer of enamel is removed from the tooth to accommodate the crown.
  • Impressions of the prepared tooth are taken and the shade of the natural teeth is recorded so the crown can be made to fit perfectly.
  • To protect the tooth between appointments, it will be covered with a temporary crown.
  • When ready, this temporary crown is removed and the new permanent one fixed in place with a strong dental cement.

As long as crowns are looked after carefully, by avoiding very hard foods and thoroughly cleaning teeth, they offer a natural looking restoration that can last for years.
