Crowns can be used to repair and restore a tooth that has become damaged in some way, restoring the natural tooth to full function and helping to maintain a beautiful smile.

When a tooth becomes damaged, we are often able to restore it to full function through the placement of a crown. This damage may be the result of tooth decay, wear and tear, an injury or accident, or a former filling that has unfortunately failed or deteriorated. Crowns are also often used when placing a bridge to replace missing or damaged teeth, or to fully restore a tooth after a root canal treatment.

1. What are crowns made from?

Crowns have traditionally often been made of a precious metal such as gold, although now we’re able to make them with materials that fit in much more naturally with the rest of the mouth. Modern crowns are often therefore made of porcelain or Zirconia, both of which can excellently mimic the shade, shape, and surface texture of a natural tooth as well as being highly durable.

2. What is the treatment process like?

Receiving a crown usually happens over two appointments. At the first appointment, we will prepare the tooth being treated after first removing any of the decayed or weakened parts of the tooth. Once this has been done, we’ll take a digital scan or impression which will be used to make your personal crown.

At this point, we’ll be able to provide you with a temporary crown which you’ll wear for two weeks or so while your crown is being made. Once made, we’ll place the crown for you here shaping and cementing it into place. In some cases, we may be able to use our in-house Cerec machine to bespoke-make your crown for you right here. This means we’ll be able to apply your crown in just one appointment, and you’ll be able to leave the practice with your tooth fully restored.

3. Are there any alternative treatments available?

Depending on the extent of the damage present, we may be able to place an onlay instead of a crown. Onlays require less of the natural tooth to be removed during application and therefore can offer a more minimally-invasive alternative. We’ll be able to provide you with all your options and ascertain your suitability for each treatment during a consultation.
