Crowns can be used to improve the appearance of the teeth but are generally used to support a root treated tooth.

Made from a variety of materials, including metal, porcelain, resin or ceramic, they can also be used to support a dental bridge. We also make sure that the colour matches the rest of your teeth, promising an even finish.

Treatment Steps
  • So the crown can be accommodated, we remove a layer of the tooth surface, but make sure we leave a strong core. The amount of tooth removed depends on the thickness of the crown, which can differ depending on the material used to make it.
  • We then take impressions of your teeth and record their colour so the crown can be made to fit perfectly.
  • Between appointments, we protect the prepared tooth with a temporary crown.
  • When your crown is ready, the temporary crown is removed and the new permanent one fixed in place with a strong dental cement.
Aftercare

The best way to care for your crown is to stay on top of your oral hygiene – this means keeping your teeth and gums healthy by brushing with a fluoride toothpaste twice day and flossing between your teeth. You also need to see your dentist regularly for check-ups so they can keep an eye on your crown and the tooth underneath.

A crown helps to protect a tooth from decay, but not where it meets the gum, and it does not guard against gum disease, so it’s important to keep the area clean and free from bacteria.
