When teeth are damaged by trauma or decay, they can be left weaker and more susceptible to further deterioration. A dental crown will help to restore strength and protect your natural teeth. Dental crowns are small caps of porcelain that fit over a worn or broken tooth to create a restoration that can function normally. This is also a popular aesthetic enhancement, as dental crowns can also hide imperfections such as cracks, chips and discolouration that cannot be fixed with other dental procedures.

Dental crowns are about more than just aesthetics; they also provide a strong and durable solution for teeth that may have been weakened by an accident or corroded over time. This is a highly effective way to protect vulnerable teeth from further damage and a natural looking replacement that is also used in missing tooth treatments such as dental implants.
The procedure requires two visits to the dentist. During the first visit, we will take impressions of your teeth and prepare all the necessary details before instructing our dental laboratory to create your new crown. A dental technician will then carefully and skilfully craft your new tooth to the exact specifications required.
In the meantime, we can place a temporary crown to prevent any further damage to your tooth. When the crown is ready, we will invite you to return to the practice where we will ensure it is a perfect fit before finally cementing it in place.
