A dental crown is a tooth-shaped ‘cap’ that sits over the weakened tooth to protect it. We use the procedure to help restore fractured, chipped or damaged teeth whilst ensuring the crown matches the rest of your smile.
Crowns are available in a variety of materials:




Porcelain crowns are made from a variety of hardwearing materials. The type of material used will depend on the type of procedure you need.

Porcelain bonded to precious metal crown is made of a precious metal base. Porcelain is then applied in layers over a base of metal, it is not as strong as the bonded style, but they can look very natural and are mostly used on front teeth. They are perfect for patients that do not grind their teeth.

Composite crowns are made of a resin and also look very natural. They are not as strong as bonded crowns and are used as a long-term solution for full mouth reconstruction cases. These crowns help the patient to get used to a repositioning of the bite.

Precious metal crowns are made from gold and palladium. They are extremely strong and usually used to the back of the mouth. Metal crowns are not visible and most suitable for people who grind and clench their teeth.

The procedure to make you a crown – we would need to take an impression of your teeth and send it to the dental laboratory. Expert technicians will handcraft your crown and will make sure it matches your natural tooth shade. During your second visit, we bond the newly prepared crown into place with a special adhesive.
