What is a dental crown?

A crown is a porcelain cap, cover or restoration to replace the missing portion of your tooth. Patients may need a crown for a range of reasons, including:

  • damaged teeth
  • broken, worn-down teeth
  • teeth which are heavily filled
  • purely cosmetic, for a more vibrant smile.

Patients with damaged teeth benefit from the protective properties a dental crown provides, especially with helping to improve bite strength.

CEREC single visit crowns

To create a crown which is completely customised to your existing teeth colour and mouth shape, our skilled dentists use CEREC. The CEREC technology uses digital imaging to construct dental crowns in one visit, while you wait. The machine uses digital imaging to construct crowns in less than 30 minutes, with the resultant crown completely customised to your existing teeth and mouth shape.

Then, your dentist affixes the crown to your tooth or teeth and you leave our clinic with a new smile!
