Dental Crowns

A crown is an artificial restoration that fits over the remaining part of a prepared tooth, making it strong and giving it the shape of a natural tooth. A crown is sometimes known as a 'cap'.

Crowns are an ideal restoration for teeth that have been broken, or have been weakened by decay or a very large filling. Crowns can also be used to restore teeth that are discoloured, broken or crooked and to close gaps.

Crowns are aesthetically pleasing and can look and feel very natural. Crowns also protect the tooth and once restored can last for many years.

The materials we use nowadays for crowns give a more natural appearance than traditional bulky crowns. Old crowns generally have a poor shade compared to natural teeth and often have a black margin between the crown and the gum.

What are crowns made of?

They can be made of porcelain or gold, or a combination of these materials. Nowadays most crowns are made of porcelain and this enables a very close colour match to existing teeth.

How long do they last?

With regular check-ups from your dentist and good oral hygiene, most crowns will last over 20 years.

How long does it take to make a crown?

It takes 2 visits. On your first appointment the tooth will be shaped ready for the porcelain crown and whilst this is being made at the dental laboratory, a temporary one will be fitted. On your second appointment the crown will be fitted and you can then enjoy the results.

Does the treatment procedure hurt?

No. Having a crown requires some preparation of the underlying tooth, however this is done after a small amount of local anaesthetic so you will not feel anything.
