A crown is a popular way to restore and repair a damaged tooth. Sitting over the damaged tooth like a cap, a crown protects the rest of the tooth, acting as a barrier, while also helping to improve the aesthetic finish of the smile.
Crowns are often made of gold, Zirconia, or porcelain. Porcelain is particularly popular as it offers a very natural-looking finish, mimicking not only the natural colour of the teeth but a similar surface texture too.
Receiving a crown usually takes place over two appointments. Any decayed or damaged parts of the tooth that need to be removed will be and then we can prepare the tooth to receive the crown. We’ll take a scan or an impression of the mouth which will be sent off to our dental laboratory partners, where your crown will be made.
In the interim, we can usually provide you with a temporary crown. Once ready, you can come back into the practice where we’ll apply and shape the crown, making sure it sits and fits correctly before fixing it into place.
