Crowns are a sensible and effective way of restoring your smile and protecting weakened teeth.

The idea behind a crown is that it is an artificial restoration that fits snugly over the whole tooth once it has been prepared. Each crown is custom made for a tooth.

Crowns can:

  • Strengthening a weak tooth or weak teeth
  • Assisting a tooth on its road to restoration after root canal treatment
  • Improving the appearance of discoloured or damaged teeth
  • Holding in dentures

Crowns are made from:

  • Gold alloy
  • Ceramic
  • Porcelain
  • Porcelain bonded to precious metal

Each option has its pros and cons, please discuss with your dentist. The best looking crowns tend to be ceramic crown. The longest lasting are gold crowns which wear at a similar rate as natural tooth enamel.

You may be wondering whether the crown will look artificial. The answer to that question is that your crown will be made to match the colour and shape of your surrounding teeth. We use a variety of different laboratories which each specialise in the manufacture of the crowns. Each crown is custom made for each client and each crown is designed to look great and fit perfectly.

A crown can last for a considerable amount of time as long as it is well cared for. On average, a crown is estimated to last for between 10-15 years.
