Crowns

Effective solutions to cover defects and transform your smile.

If one or more of your teeth need a little TLC to get your smile dazzling again, crowns and veneers can be used to improve the overall appearance with a natural-coloured cover-up. The amount of damage or decay to the tooth will determine whether a crown or veneer is fitted.

If your teeth are suffering from damage that can’t be repaired with a standard filling, we can use a crown to restore structure and functionality. Crowns can also cover badly decayed teeth, protecting them from further damage, and conceal any discolouration or chips.

We are able to colour match your crown to your natural teeth, ensuring it slots perfectly into your smile. We can also make crowns from porcelain or ceramic material, making them as aesthetically pleasing as possible.

What is involved in the treatment?

Fitting your crown is a straightforward process, needing just two appointments to complete. At your initial appointment, we remove a layer of structure from the affected tooth, leaving a strong core. We will then take impressions of your teeth and protect your prepared tooth until your next appointment with a temporary crown.

Once your crown is ready, we will invite you to the practice for your second appointment. It doesn’t take long for us to remove the temporary crown and fix your new permanent one into place. All that’s left to do is show off your new smile!

Looking after Crowns

The best way to take care of your crown is by maintaining an excellent oral hygiene routine, including brushing and flossing regularly. It is also important to keep attending your regular checkups, so your dentist can ensure everything is as it should be.
