I would like to

A dental crown is a cap used to restore a tooth. It is prefabricated and sits over a flawed tooth to improve function and match the size and shape of the rest of your teeth. Crowns protect a tooth that has been weakened, cracked, or damaged, and feel and look just like a natural tooth.

What is a crown made from?

Crowns can be made from a variety of materials such as porcelain, acrylic, resin, and even gold.

Why would I need a crown?
  • Cover a misshapen tooth
  • Anchor a dental bridge
  • Strengthen a weakened tooth
  • Protect a tooth after a root canal
  • Aesthetically improve your smile
What happens during the procedure?

A crown typically takes two visits to complete. The dentist uses local anaesthesia to numb the area where the crown will go and reshapes the tooth to fit the crown. The dentist will also take an impression or a digital scan of the tooth to send to the dental laboratory.

You will receive a temporary crown until the new one is ready.
At your next appointment, your dentist will fit the crown over your permanent tooth, ensuring it fits snug from the gumline to the top of the tooth. Your dentist then cements it in place.
