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.

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 am very nervous with Dentist but Dorsa made my visit very comfortable. Very highly recommended
Just had a fantastic craftsmanship done by Dorsa @Bhandal Dental practice on my front tooth. Excellent work and attitude. I get overly nervous at dentists. But i think this was the first time ever I actually got calmed down and did not rip the arms of the chair. Thank you, Dorsa, much appreciated.
Dorsa was fabulous, due to poor experiences with a different surgery in the past, I am utterly terrified of the dentist. However Dorsa put me at ease and constantly checked how I was feeling, I underwent NHS and cosmetic treatment and the results brought on happy tears, my teeth have never looked or felt so good. Thank you for giving me my smile back.
My dentist was called dorsa today and she was amazing talked me through the whole Procedure and made me feel really calm x
Excellent dental work, as good as private. Good manner, quick, tender, relaxed. Very good. Thank you Dorsa, and Meera.
Don't usually see this dentist (Dorsa) My usual one Luckie was not available, I was having deep filling and she kept me at ease, explained everything she was doing and was so gentle that I didn't even feel the needle for when she froze my mouth. Would definitely want to see her again. Thank you.
It was a very good experience. The doctors were very nice and kept on asking me if i was okay.
Dorsa was really kind and nice. She explained everything to me really well as well giving me advice. I feel safe and comfortable. I would totally recommend her she's amazing 😊😊
I was so nervous and felt really anxious during my procedure today but Dorsa and her colleague ( sorry I should’ve asked your name ) were absolutely wonderful and were so patient with the patient:) I can highly recommend! Thanks again ladies!
Great service! All staff polite and friendly and my dentist Dorsa did amazing work on my teeth
I like to leave reviews, when I've had an excellent service.... the receptionists( Lisa and Rebecca) always have a smile to greet you on entrance....the dentists(Dorsa and Morva) are so professional and so very friendly...dental nurse (Meera)again greet you with a friendly smile....all of the other staff, who I can't name, also always smiling.
I have been a patient with Bhandal for many years and I have never had a bad experience. I have recently had some composite bonding done by Dorsa who has done a fantastic job, she has a real eye for detail and has given me back the confidence to smile.
