About dental crowns

Dental crowns are a type of restoration used to bolster damaged and weak teeth and improve oral function. Crowns are placed over the existing tooth structure and they have amazing benefits for the aesthetic of the smile as well as your oral health. We often recommend porcelain crowns because this ceramic material is incredibly strong, as well as being a very close match to the natural shade of the teeth. Porcelain crowns also boast an iridescent finish that will make your smile glow.

We usually use two sessions to complete crown treatment. The first session is used to plan treatment, prepare the tooth and create an impression for the dental technicians and the second session is designed to fit the crown. We work with the best dental technicians and use the finest quality materials to produce hard-wearing, aesthetically pleasing crowns and our dentists have extensive experience in this form of treatment, so you’re in good hands!

Why would I need a crown?

Your dentist may recommend a crown in the following circumstances:

  • the tooth is damaged following an injury or accident
  • the tooth has been weakened by a large filling
  • the tooth is severely decayed
  • you have a dental infection that has spread to the pulp tissue (a crown is usually placed after root canal treatment in this case)
  • you are undergoing tooth replacement treatment (a crown is fitted to a dental implant in this scenario)

How long will a crown last?

Crowns don’t last forever, but they should last around five years depending on the material used and how well you care for your crown.
