Dental Crowns
  • My teeth are damaged
  • I have a broken tooth

Dental Crowns are used to strengthen your existing damaged tooth to protect its functionality. Crowns restore cracked, broken and damaged teeth. They can also be called caps as they often sit over your damaged tooth and protect the outer surface.

Dental Crowns are used to strengthen your existing damaged tooth to protect its functionality. Crowns restore cracked, broken and damaged teeth.

They can also be called caps as they often sit over your damaged tooth and protect the outer surface.

The tooth is prepared so that it is the ideal shape of the crown. To do this your dentist will remove part of the tooth so that it’s the thickness of the new crown.

When the tooth has been shaped an impression of the tooth will be taken (mould) and also of the other jaw so that the dentist can see how you bite together.

These impressions and also any shade of crown needed will be passed to a dental technician. The crown will then be made and fixed in place with dental cement. This will form a seal which will hold the crown in place.

You will need at least two visits to the dentist for the existing tooth to be prepared and for your new crown to be fitted.

It may take a few weeks for your new crown to feel normal in your mouth, when the crown has settled; it will look feel and function like the rest of your teeth.

As long as you have good dental hygiene and go for regular check-ups your dental crown should last between 10 and 15 years before having to be replaced.
