By replacing the outer surface of the teeth, dental crowns restore your teeth to a completely natural look with greatly improved strength and quality. During the procedure, our experienced dentists will fit a porcelain crown or ‘cap’ over the tooth after preparation of the underlying tooth has taken place. Preparation of the tooth involves removal of decay, replacing any missing tooth structure with new high-strength filling material, and then reducing the natural crown of tooth by 1-2 mm in all aspects to allow space for the new artificial crown to fit over the top.
A crown is bonded to the underlying tooth and made secure using strong, durable cement. A temporary crown is made at the initial visit to protect the underlying tooth while the new ceramic crown is made.We also offer same day crowns which can be designed and fitted within a single appointment.
