Dental Crowns

A dental crown is a tooth-shaped "cover" that is placed over a tooth -- covering the tooth to restore its shape and size, strength, and/or to improve its appearance.

The crowns, when cemented into place, fully encase the entire visible portion of a tooth that lies at and above the gum line.

Why Is a Dental Crown Needed?

A dental crown may be needed in the following situations:

  • To restore an already broken tooth or a tooth that has been severely worn down.

  • To cover and support a tooth with a large filling when there isn't a lot of tooth left.

  • To hold a dental bridge in place.

  • To cover misshapen or severely discoloured teeth.

  • To cover a dental implant.

  • What Types of Crowns Are Available?

    Permanent crowns can be made from all metal, porcelain-fused-to-metal, all resin, or all ceramic.

    There are many different types on the market, and we research to see which are most hard wearing, cosmetic, and functional.

    Pros and Cons of different types of crowns:

  • Some crowns are more aesthetic (look better) than others.

  • Some crowns can be more hard wearing than others.

  • Some can be less destructive to the natural teeth, either as less tooth preparation is required, or as there is less wear to opposing (opposite) teeth.

  • Some crowns are more likely to cause reactions in susceptible individuals, and others are more or less likely to cause gingival irritation (irritation to the gum, which can then lead to gum recession).

  • Taking all these considerations, and others into account, with your help, we can decide which type of crown is best suited to your needs.
