Crowns

Crowns

As well as repairing a tooth to restore its strength and function, a crown can make a damaged tooth look just like new. A crown is a ‘cap’ that slots over a broken, decayed or discoloured tooth. They can also be used to support a dental bridge or affixed to a dental implant, and are made from a variety of materials including gold, porcelain, resin or ceramic.

Treatment steps

  • After numbing the area, we remove a thin top layer of your tooth so the crown will fit neatly.
  • We take impressions of this prepared tooth and record its colour.
  • Your crown is then custom made in a laboratory and while you wait for it to be produced, your prepared tooth will be protected with a temporary restoration.
  • When ready, the brand new crown is fitted over your tooth.

Crowns are a great solution for teeth that have more extensive damage and, if cared for well, they can last for years.
