This treatment involves placing a cap over the damaged tooth, offering a natural-looking solution.

Types of Crowns

All-Porcelain Crowns

Zirconia is comparable to natural teeth in its appearance and durability. With its high strength and excellent resistance to chewing force, zirconia crowns are a common choice.

Glass Ceramic has a translucent quality, making it the most alike to natural teeth. Being thinner than other porcelain combinations, glass ceramic crowns are less suitable for heavily worn-down teeth.

Resin Crowns

Resin can be likened to natural teeth in its appearance, however, resin crowns are fragile and often placed as a temporary solution.

Gold Crowns

Gold will, of course, give you a unique smile. Additionally, gold crowns are highly resistant to corrosion, fracture, and wear due to their strength.

Dental Crown FAQs

Dental crowns are an excellent solution to covering a broken, damaged or decaying tooth.

They not only only improve your smile and restore confdience, but support your face shape and resolve issues with speech and eating.

Depending on the type of crown, they can be made from materials including porcelain, resin, or a combination of metals.

During your initial consultation we will discuss the treatment and offer guidance on options available for you to achieve your desired result.

Your second appointment will be a comprehensive treatment planning consultation with Duncan. He will conduct any necessary X-Rays and explain to you in detail all options available to you.

When treatment commences, Duncan will numb the area and remove a thin top layer of the tooth so the crown will fit neatly over the top.

Then, we will take impressions and a note of your tooth colour so your new crown blends in perfectly.

While your crown is being made in the laboratory, we will place a temporary restoration to preserve your smile and health.

When ready, your new crown is fitted over your tooth, giving you a smile to be proud of.

With regular check-ups and good oral hygiene, your dental crowns can last from 5 to 8 years.

Brush and floss twice daily to prevent tooth decay and gum disease, maintaining regular visits to your dental hygienist.
