IMPROVE YOUR SMILE
Dental crowns or ‘caps’ are a highly effective way to restore a tooth’s function and/or appearance when it has been damaged by tooth decay or trauma.
Advantages of dental crowns
Dental crowns are made to look just like your natural teeth. In the case of trauma or decay, they are fitted over the top of your existing tooth to prevent further problems, restore functionality and improve appearance.
What should I expect?
Treatment will typically be broken into two appointments. Firstly, following a local anaesthetic so the procedure is comfortable, we’ll remove any decay and reshape the tooth so the crown can be fitted.
An impression will be taken so that we can create a crown that perfectly fits your tooth. Dental crowns should look completely natural whilst helping to restore function and prevent future problems.
At the first appointment, we will fit you with a temporary crown so that you won’t have a gap in your smile whilst you wait for your custom made crown to be installed.
At the second appointment, your crown will be tried in; we’ll check the fit, appearance and we will check the bite. The crown will be cemented in place if we are happy.
