Dental Crowns

Dental crowns are an inexpensive way of cosmetically repairing your broken, cracked, worn or unsightly teeth. The skilled and caring dentists at our Mooroolbark dental clinic use both traditional materials and the more advanced porcelain equivalents to give you a great-looking smile.

After an initial consultation with you, we will discuss the most appropriate form of treatment.

What are dental crowns?

A crown, or porcelain crown, is a cap, cover or restoration to replace the missing portion of your tooth.

There are many indications for crowning a tooth. These can be due to aesthetic considerations but most are due to a lack of remaining tooth structure. If your tooth is broken down or heavily filled, the crown is placed to protect your tooth from the high biting forces we exert on our teeth whilst eating.

Not all crowns are the same and we provide gold crowns, porcelain bonded to gold crowns at our Mooroolbark practice, as well as the latest in the metal-free alternatives that give truly lifelike results.

The latest advances in porcelain allow light to transmit through the crown, thereby creating a restoration that is undetectable from the other natural teeth in your smile. With the absence of any metal core on the inside of the crown, there will be no more telltale grey lines that are usually seen with the older metal-ceramic crowns

What are the benefits of dental crowns

Crowns are an inexpensive way of repairing your teeth.

With the modern materials we use, there will be no way of spotting your treatments.

FAQs About Dental Crowns

Which is the best treatment for me?

This depends on the tooth and the degradation of the tooth. We like to begin the process with an initial consultation where we will recommend an appropriate course of treatment for you.

Is there any long-term maintenance required?

No, however we do recommend a regular dental hygienist appointment to ensure longevity in your treatment as well as regular oral health checks with the dentist.
