Crowns

Dental crowns offer an ideal way to protect and restore natural teeth.

Crowns are made from porcelain or composite material and most commonly used to restore a damaged tooth. Your dentist might recommend a crown after a root canal treatment, or if your tooth has been cracked, chipped or damaged by decay. This is a private restorative dental treatment that will help you to smile and eat with confidence again.

Benefits of Dental Implants

  • Protect Your Natural Teeth
  • Maintain Chewing Function
  • Conceal Discolouration
  • Long Lasting Restoration

What is a dental crown?

A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that fits over your existing tooth. This can help to make the tooth stronger, maintain your bite, and even hide discolouration. If you have had root canal treatment or an extensive cavity filling, you might not have enough tooth structure remaining, and this could leave the tooth exposed to damage. In this instance, we would recommend a dental crown to help restore your smile.

There are three main types of materials used for dental crowns: metal, porcelain and composite. Composite is the cheapest option, but this might not be suitable for anterior (back) teeth. A porcelain or ceramic crown will look most like a natural tooth but is prone to chips. And finally, a gold or silver tooth is the longest-lasting but most expensive option.

Why might I need a dental crown?

When a tooth is heavily damaged by decay, chips or cracks, a dental crown may be recommended to help protect the remaining structure. A dental crown is commonly used after a root canal to help protect the remaining tooth from damage and to make it stronger. It can also be effective for sealing and protecting a tooth that has been chipped or cracked.

Dental crowns are commonly used to replace missing teeth with the help of dental implants. And finally, it’s also possible to restore a tooth with a crown for purely aesthetic reasons. For example, if the tooth is heavily discoloured or crooked, a crown will help to improve the appearance.

So happy with my new smile . Got all my confidence back. Don’t know how to thank them!

Frequently asked questions

How can we help?

Dental restoration treatments are used to repair or replace damaged teeth. Common dental restoration treatments include fillings, crowns, bridges, and implants. Fillings are used to repair minor damage to the tooth structure, while crowns are used to cover and protect a damaged tooth. Bridges are used to replace missing teeth, and implants are used to replace missing teeth or to support a dental prosthesis.

The results of dermal filler injections typically last for several months. After that, the filler will gradually dissolve and be metabolised by the body.

  • I recently underwent Invisalign and whitening with Dr Simran and Demi, and couldn’t be more satisfied with the results!From the initial consultation to final adjustments, their level of care and attention to detail was truly outstanding.Dr Simran’s expertise and professionalism were evident from the get go. She took time to thoroughly explain the treatment process and answered all my questions with patience and clarity. Demi was equally fantastic, keeping me updated with the next steps and making each visit a pleasant one.I am so pleased with the results!! I highly recommend :)

  • My third visit to Dr Dorsa today. I have advanced gum disease & needed deep cleaning sessions to minimise effects of this. My individual treatment plan clearly explained including how to improve dental hygiene at home. Dr Dorsa delivered treatment in a sensitive caring manner & today’s results show a marked improvement to my gum health. Very happy with service provided & can recommend.

  • My dentist retired, and his replacement has taken over some of his patients. He's a lovely young man called Suki and has made me comfortable and relaxed . I had a tooth break, and he has made an emergency repair. Need to go back in the new year for a replacement filling

  • I am posting on behalf of my mother who is really happy with the dentures she had made here by Dr Simrun. She had to pay privately but said it was worth every penny. My mother was very anxious. Hadn’t been to the dentist in over 40 years but she said she felt really comfortable with Dr Simrun who was patient and took her time with her. The dentist even stayed late to fit the dentures before my mother went on holiday. Overall really happy and my mother wanted to express her thanks again.
