ABOUT DENTAL CROWNS
What are the benefits of Crowns?
Crowns are ideal for people seeking a natural appearance by replacing a missing tooth or strengthen a weakened tooth. A dental crown is a dental material that is applied over the crown of the tooth to provide it with protection and support.
Crowns serve a wide range of purposes. They can strengthen broken down or weakened teeth, help restore them to them to their original contour, fill spaces in our smiles, help bring teeth forward, improve the appearance of stained and discolored teeth and support bridges that are replacing missing teeth.

How does the process of Crowns work?
Prior to a tooth being restored with a crown, we need to build a strong foundation on the remainder of the tooth being capped. The foundation will strengthen the tooth and ensure the crown is well-retained. The foundation is often called a “Core” and may be manufactured from a range of materials, such as a bonded filling post. It may also be a cast gold post produced in a lab. You will normally only need a post if there is only a small amount of structure remaining. If the dental nerve is inflamed, we may need to refer you to an Endodontist.
After the foundation has been created, we can prepare the tooth for the crown. We can then create a model of the prepared tooth. Crowns can be ceramic, porcelain, gold or made from metal alloys. Gold alloys may be ideal if you don’t have much healthy tooth left.
Who gets Crowns?
Crowns are ideal for people wishing to restore their teeth. Those seeking a natural appearance may be best served by most porcelain-based crowns, while people who require extra durability may wish to opt for gold or metal alloys. Talk to us today to find out more about our crown restorations.
