Dental Crowns

Dental crowns (also known as caps) are a laboratory made restoration that are fitted on top of a prepared tooth to improved both the appearance and function of a tooth.

Why Would I Need a Dental Crown?

Dental crowns are commonly used on teeth that have broken down due to natural wear and tear or even tooth decay, but have progressed passed needing a filling or inlay & onlay.

What Are The Benefits of Porcelain Dental Crowns?

They are:

  • Strong & durable
  • Made to blend with your natural teeth
  • Act like your natural teeth
  • Has longevity (dependent on your own oral hygiene routine)

Will My New Tooth Be Secure

Depending on your requirement (based on the treatment you go ahead with), crowns will be secured in place by:

  • Dental implants - a titanium screw that is placed into the bone & gum to securely hold the tooth in place (our sister practice has an implant dentist who can offer this treatment)
  • Dental cement - the new dental crown will be cemented on top of the prepared tooth
